Thanks, I didn't know about this option.

My config was right (tried default and pointed to my local copy).

I did so and they fixed two problems related to timestamps. SVNKit used
use-commit-times = yes
as default which is different from subversions default. Also this option
was sometimes ignored and not evaluated. It's fixed in rev 3023.

PS: Please note that I was not able to test timestamps if the working
copy is on a mounted remote filesystem. Maybe it should be tested as
well ...
