various questions related to repo size

Hi
I started testing svn the other day using ra_local and ra_svn on a linux kernel tree
(about 280 Megs)

What I did was:
I had a repo and 3 workspaces.Moved the kernel tree into one and checked it in.
It lasted over half an hour and after two screenfuls of dots it said Killed.
But anyway the tree was in.
The workspace from which I committed uses around 293Megs.

Now I updated the 2 other workspaces (one ra_local other ra_svn from localhost)
After a while they had the kernel tree but those workspaces are 534Megs each.

1) Aren't 2 workspaces supposed to be equal if everything is commited from one and
updated form the other?The difference is .svn/prop and ./svn/prop-base files which appear
only in the updated WS not the original.

2) The repository seemed to grow while the WS was updating.About 300M for each WS.Why should the
repo care about an update and use up so much space?It is in log.XXXXXXXX files which according
to a mail from Brane dated Jan 13th are required.The more clients the more the repo grows?
Does it keep some sort of repository for each client separately?I don't think so because if one
deletes a WS the repo shouldn't care but the extra hundreds on megs would stay there.

Am I correct in supposing that these are not features of svn but I misused it or came across some bugs?

svn of 24Jan (post 17.1) with DB 4.1.24

thanks
Jani.
