This symptom of not getting any prompt back reminds me of a totally
non-svn related "bug" but a network error I encountered some time ago.
When running a ssh session to a remote computer via en VPN tunnel
commands on the remote computer returning a lot of data halted the
session after just a couple of lines.
i.e. "ls -l" didn't work but "ls" did for the same directory.

The problem was that the router where the tunnel ended (or started) on
my side had been replaced an the MTU had changed, so network packets to
large didn't come through the tunnel..
When the network people corrected the MTU everything worked again.

Don't know if that's your problem but I'm telling the story so you can
investigate this option.
