I am facing a strange problem where svn commands block for a couple of minutes if I use gnome-terminal. So does UXTerm and Terminator. But strangely Guake Terminal works fine.
I ran the following command both in gnome-terminal and Guake Terminal:
strace -r -o strace.outfile svn ls svn://192.168.1.10
I have pasted the output for gnome-terminal here: http://pastebin.com/57sp8vxK. As you can see in case of gnome-terminal the poll waits for 25 seconds at line-no 40. I've shown only the first wait. It happens multiple times for a total of 145 seconds. It does not wait like that in the Guake terminal.
Any idea? What they are waiting for and why it happens only in gnome-terminal?
