I just spotted the following in the 1.7 release notes, in the "New
feature compatibility table" [1]:

[[[
Feature: reduced subtree mergeinfo recording
Minimum Client: 1.7
Minimum Server: any
Minimum Repository: any
Notes: If both pre-1.7 clients and 1.7 clients are used to perform
merges to the same branch, the pre-1.7 clients may experience slower
merge performance.
]]]

Maybe your problem is related to huge amounts of subtree mergeinfo?
