That's not the bug, that's the feature ;) The problem is that when the
MD5 has been compared and it's
been decided that the file is in fact unchanged, the file timestamps
aren't reset to match eachother. As a
result the next 'status' will result in yet another MD5 calculation.
Running 'touch' to update all file timestamps
to current time could end up in hours or even days for a 'status'
command to complete depending on the
size of the WC since it would calculate MD5 sums for _all_files :(
The work around is to remove the WC and check it out freshly.
I think not knowing that could give wildly wrong performance figures.
