Well, if your system is corrupting data, it's probably not playing nice
and adjusting the mod time of your files. To save time, Subversion does
not compare the contents of a working copy file with the text-base if
the mod-time hasn't changed.

Also, if your system is corrupting data, it might be due to bad memory,
in which case different reads of files may yield different results. See
www.memtest86.com if you want to check your system's memory.
