Performance of `svn status <filename>'

From: Stephen Peters <portnoy_at_portnoy.org>

I noticed that an 'svn status <filename>' command was taking a long
time to complete, which I found odd since it should only be checking
the status of one file and not using the network. Performing an
'strace' on the command, however, indicates that every directory in
the subtree was having its 'format' and 'entries' files read. Since
this was a significant number of directories, this was taking a long
time. The same behavior occurs even when I do 'svn status -N
<filename>'.

Is there a reason why all the subdirectories have to be checked, or is
this a performance bug?
