svn update

svn commit

If the scripted change occurs before the system time advances past the
FAT resolution, Subversion might not detect that the file has changed,
and the commit won't transmit that file.

(We could store the size of the unmodified working copy file
in .svn/entries, and check whether that has changed as well. That would
substantially reduce the impact of this kind of bug. But I'm not sure
it's worth the effort and space and code complexity.)
