traffic, no disk access, no CPU usage. My hypothesis is that this happens after it had some
problem connecting to the server, and rather than retrying consistently, or giving up and
throwing an error message, it just sits there bored for maybe 45 minutes not knowing what
to do.

First thing to check: what version is your SVN client and your SVN server?
If not the latest, can your re-check with at least the latest client
version, and see if the problem is still there?

Just to rule out the possibility that it's a bug that has been fixed already.
