Are you sure about that?

This only started happening recently - since the beginning of the
month, that I recall. I just tried copying the format file out of my
.svn directory (directory, and file, both compressed) out to my
desktop (not compressed), and the format file sitting on my desktop is
not compressed.

HOWEVER, I just tried with another QC, .svn not compressed. I deleted
a file (not svn del, just a regular delete), and then updated. The
restored file was not compressed. I then compressed .svn, deleted the
file, and updated. The restored file is compressed.

Difference between how the subversion libraries (since I see it using
svn as well as tsvn) does copies and how Explorer does it, maybe?
