I've also had problems with SourceForge timeouts, but I've always eventually managed to get things updated.
When I start a check out and get a connection timeout, I retry doing multiple svn update's until all of the files finally make.
If I had to get a complete checkout to go though it might never make it!

I have no experience with setting up mirror repositories, so I'm afraid I have no help to offer on that one.
My use of SourceForge has always been limited to simple commits and check-outs and updates.
And I've always been able to work around connection timeout problems for those simple operations.
You are trying something way beyond my experience!!!

Good luck,
