Yes, that's correct. Any operation that opens the whole tree reads
all the entries files at the start. I suppose read operations could
be made more streamy (although it may well not be a trivial change),
but would we want to do that for write operations? At present if part
of a wc needs 'svn cleanup' an update/commit operation fails before
doing any network stuff, in the past it would fail part way through
when it ran into the locked directory.

As I recall I brought up the question of memory use when I introduced
the entries caching.
