Welcome to the hidden beauty of Svn.
Svn has a fairly high overhead "per directory", which means Java projects can 
explode fairly massively. AFAIK, there is nothing you can do about that. This 
is probably the 230MB you are talking about, the 840MB is rectified with a 
more modern filesystem. If you are stuck on Windows, NTFS is the only real 
choice I guess.
