This sounds weird. I think I've had much better performance with larger 
repositories.

I'm tending towards thinking it could maybe be some bug in that version you 
have installed. It looks like a release-candidate (rc4), and could 
therefore be an unstable version. Have you tried other versions of Git?

There are some interesting observations and discussions on huuuge 
repositories 
here<http://comments.gmane.org/gmane.comp.version-control.git/189776>, 
but I don't think you should be running into those problems.
