Are you testing on Windows?  git has historically had performance
problems on Windows because its Unix-oriented optimizations are often
pessimizations on Windows.  Like other posters, I've never seen a git
pull longer than 30 seconds (Mac OS X) or 15(!) on GNU/Linux, some of
which updated more than 100 objects (maybe nearly 1000) because I
don't do it often.

In terms of effect on the working directory, "bzr pull" is indeed the
equivalent of cvs up -d, but the implementation is quite different.

I believe that there are important improvements to pull that will be
in bzr 1.11 or 1.12 (so within two months), but they may require a
repo format upgrade.
