Need clarification on when exactly TSVN detects that a file is "changed"

Under the heading "Why does TortoiseSVN not recognize that a file has
been modified?", the FAQ says:

"Subversion determines whether a file has changed with the following
approach: has the 'last modification' date and/or the file size changed..."

In regards to the above:

1. I assume this statement applies both to SVN Updates and SVN Commits.
Is this true?
2. The statement says that it detects if the "last
modification...changed". Changed in what way? Does this mean that if
file.localtime <> file.servertime that it will detect the change? Or
does that mean that it will only detect it if file.localtime >
file.servertime. Our experience is that only the latter is true.
3. The statement refers to "last modification date"...does this also
include the time? i.e. will it detect a change if the dates are the same
but the times are different?
4. Is it possible to change any setting regarding how TortoiseSVN
detects that a file has changed?

Thank you for your help.
