Objection, your honor!
That's not a bug! If the file timestamp was changed, Subversion _must_
check if the file has been modified by either calculating the checksum
or by comparing byte by byte of the file with its base copy. There's no
other (reliable) way to check if a file has been modified.
That's definitely not a bug, it's a very good design.
