Hard to say whether this is a regression, without having a comparison
with your old version. How long did 1.6 take in these scenarios?

And: which OS and filesystem?

1.7 seems to be slower for some operations when the working copy is on
a network drive (NFS, CIFS, ...). Is this the case? If so, can you try
and compare it to a similar working copy on a local drive?

Also: maybe try running 'svn cleanup' on the entire working copy. (SVN
keeps track in its metadata of last-modified times of the files. If
both the last-modified time and filesize are still the same, SVN
assumes the file is unchanged. Otherwise, it will always read+checksum
the entire file to determine if it is still unchanged, which is quite
a bit slower. Sometimes the metadata of the timestamps isn't correct
anymore, for instance because the working-copy was copied (without
preserving last-modified times), or because something 'touched' it.
Obviously this can give a serious performance hit. 'svn cleanup',
among other things, restores the correct timestamps in the metadata.)
