Good catch (perhaps ReiserFS, the reporter's FS, has a similar problem
in some configurations?).

But gosh, it would be so simple for us to support this by just waiting
longer... Surely users would rather Subversion be a bit slower than not
work at all. If we can't come up with any portable way to detect the
timestamp resolution, maybe we should offer a configuration option, so
those who know can at least control it themselves. Or is that just
asking for trouble?
