I am back home now and then I used the command line command from the
 svn co http://svn.freepascal.org/svn/lazarus/trunk lazarus

This worked fine to check out a lot of files...
Maybe the command line works better than Tortoise?
Or maybe the network environment at work is better?
Or maybe my work Win7x64 PC is not suited whereas my home XP-Pro is?

I had installed TortoiseSVN back in 2006 (version 1.3 something) and I
guess it also installed the command line client.
Now after getting Lazarus checked out I will install the latest
TortoiseSVN and then try the command above for FPC.

With TortoiseSVN one gets to enter *only* the url part of the co
command shown above, but the lazarus ending part is not entered, how
come and how can TortoiseSVN know what module to check out?
