svn_client_status recurses even if told not to

with the last release of TortoiseSVN we heard of a remarkable slowdown
when fetching the file status to show the icon overlays. So we spent
some time investigating the slowdown and found that Subversion now
*always* recurses down the folder tree, even if "descend" is set to
false! I then tried the Subversion command line client to make sure it's
not the fault of TSVN:

svn st -N

also recurses, but only shows the requested statusses. But it recurses
too - you can check that with FileMon. All subdirs are checked. FileMon
shows that even the command line client opens all .svn directories in
every single subdirectory.

My question: is this intentional? If yes what's the reason to do that?
Is there maybe a workaround for that?

I'm really worried about that because this new "feature" slows down TSVN
too much and renders it almost useless for bigger working copies. Sure,
I could deactivate the icon overlays in TSVN - but that's one of the key
features of TSVN.
