Are your users on CIFS shares, or other network shares? CIFS has
turned out to be pretty chatty, and I've certainly seen issues with
significantly earlier versions of Subversion when directories willed
with hundreds or thousands of files made it perform like a dog or even
overwhelmed it. Do your users benefit from making their working copies
on a local disk, then simply replicating it to a CIFS share?

occur!  Apparently the extra output changes the timing somehow.  But performance is of course
very bad.  Less tracing recreates the errors, but without revealing a smoking gun.

See above. Did you download *to the same location*?
