[issue2391] hg clone dead slow on windows

New submission from Marco <mb at bwso.de>:

we've got a medium sized project with ~10.000 files, which we wanted to
import into mercurial (it's currently svn based, but for testing purposes we
deleted all svn history and just tested a clean initial project import).

Doing a svn checkout on this project takes ~3-5mins.

Doing a hg clone from two different(!) machines , 1) Windows Vista + hg
1.6.3   2) Windows 7 + hg 1.5 takes 19(!!) minutes. If you enable debug
message you just see hg getting slower and slower over time.

Doing a hg clone from two different linux machines (1) Debian 5   2)
ArchLinux but from the same(!) repository takes 20-30 seconds.

All hg clients and the hg server are plain vanilla.

Any ideas?
