That's the sum for the base unmodified version. Notice that even if
you make real edits that value will not change. You could try a
standalone md5 sum program like WinMD5Sum.

I'm not sure what that field means, but again it doesn't change even
if you edit the file.

You need to see whether there are any real changes in the file. File
properties (plain Windows tab, not subversion) should tell you the
last-modified time and the file size.
