It can be hard to test these things when you don't control the server.
The repostory is about half a million revisions and probably hundreds of
GB, it gets frequent commits, and each commit probably writes at least
1MB due to to the 26,000 entry directory.

Perhaps.  'svn ls' just has to look at the representation of one
directory, adding '-v' means that the representation of each child has
to be examined as well.  It's the FSFS backend code that needs to be
investigated, I see similar timings over all protocols.
