 All working copies should be the same size.

That's what I thought as well, but it turns out that Jani is correct.

$ svnadmin create repo
$ svn co file://`pwd`/repo wc1
$ svn mkdir wc1/foo
$ echo bar wc1/foo/bar
$ svn add wc1/foo/bar
$ svn ci wc1
$ svn up wc1
$ svn co file://`pwd`/repo wc2
$ diff -r --brief wc1 wc2
Files wc1/foo/.svn/entries and wc2/foo/.svn/entries differ
Only in wc2/foo/.svn/prop-base: bar.svn-base
Only in wc2/foo/.svn/props: bar.svn-work

The second working copy has props files that contain END, i.e. no
properties, but the first working copy doesn't have them. It's only a
temporary condition, the missing files will get created as the first
working copy receives updates, or if you sets some properties.

There is a further difference if you use ra_dav. In that case the
working copy that does the commit will not have activity-urls in the
dir-wcprops, while a checkout/update working copy will. Once again it
is only a temporary condition.

It is possible that we could improve working copy performance by
eliminating the props files that just contain END. I don't know
whether it would make a noticeable difference.
