svnversion & svn st

I noticed that when I run 'svnversion' and 'svn st' it will take a "long"
time (~12s on /svn source tree) to execute, and then after the first
execution it will run quickly (< 1s). Then I noticed this behaviour every
day, even though I hadn't accessed the directory tree in question. Or
hadn't accessed it directly anyway... My best guess is a backup script or
updatedb cron job is accessing the directories.

I just did a 'find . -ctime -2', 'find . -mtime -2', and 'find -atime -2'
at the root of the tree. ctime (status last changed) and mtime (last
modified) showed nothing for the last 2 days. atime (last accessed)
showed all of the contents of the .svn subdirectories and all of the
directories. I did just run 'svn st', so that makes sense. So what do
'svnversion' and 'svn st' use as an indicator to recheck the directory

This is probably a non-issue for most, but I call svnversion from my
(non-compiled) code to get the revision # for my single-revision working
copy. So the first time I do that every day I have to wait an agonizing
>10s (which is an hour a year I'd rather do something else with ;)
