I found out why it is so slow. It is so big. It takes 171M on my disk.
SVN double stores everything with a copy in the .svn folders. The store 
may be compressed.
I think that CVS double stores everything and it may be compressed also.
If this is the case, then SVN double stores the CVS double store.

I did an experiment to see what size it would be without the CVS files:
125M on disk.
