There is a known issues that might apply: The number of
entries (immediate children) in a directory should not exceed
a few 1000, see the warning box in 1.7 release notes:

If all 30k files are from a single "flat" directory or is there one
large directory somewhere in this tree, you'll hit that issue.

Having directories with many 1000 entries is all kinds of bad.
Don't do it. If you really have to do it, increase the SVN server
cache size. Note that you have to quadruple the cache size
to double the maximum cache-able object size.
