I think it has been discussed in the past that it could be considered a
Subversion bug that it does not fix itself. In other words, if it has to
resort to a byte check and still doesn't find any differences it ought to
update itself so that the next time it does not need to do the byte check

I also believe there are some Subversion operations that can cause the
timestamp problem, or not fix it. I am likely wrong on that point though.
