Hi Stefan

Thanks for your reply.  Windows task manager shows 0% cpu for the Windows command processor
running svn update.

I don't have access to the server at the moment (it runs on Linux and is under corporate control).

A colleague tried a fresh checkout with a sparse checkout of branches (immediate directories
only). That ran ok. But an update of a branch, setting depth to infinity, hangs.  Updates
to trunk are ok.
