undetected local file corruption during svn export . $tmpdir

A checkout dir on a nfs share had a file with all zeros, likely due to
some crash and a resulting corruption on the nfs server.
However, svn export . $tmpdir did not catch that.
The 'entries' file in .svn does contain a checksum, should svn export
compare the checksum of the exported file against the checksum= content?
It appearently doesnt do that in 1.2.3.

We switched to svn export $url $tmpdir in the meantime, so that part is

short story of a lazy sysadmin:
 alias appserv=wotan
