That read only action is updating some amount of cached information
about the current state of the repository. It is not changing the
content of your working copy. Without doing this, performance would
take a hit.

Your local copy **is** untouched. What is being touched is
administrative data to reduce overhead & improve performance.

You're still barking up the wrong tree on this list. And the WC
administrative area is completely overhauled for 1.7, so asking a
change to the behavior seen in 1.6 without understanding what the
future state is will just be unproductive.
