I must comment on this because I did not experience such slowness with SVN.
My SVN usage is very basic but I did svn diff for many files for my patch, one 
of them being main.pp.
It was fast, maybe 2 or 3 seconds, using command line in my oldish PC.

Thus, your problem must be caused by either TortoiseSVN or Windows, or both.

Linux seems to work better for everything. :-)
