svn status -N digs too deep

I have been trying to work out why my Windows client is slow getting top
level WC status, so I tried using Filemon.exe to monitor every file
open. It seems that svn status is recursing deeper than it should.

Windows 2000 SP4
SVN 1.1.1 r11581
file:/// access to a BDB database on the same PC

My top level working copy is C:\Blazepoint\Duo-Trio

C:\Blazepoint>svn status -N Duo-Trio
There is no output from the command because all changes are committed,
but the output from Filemon is in the attached text file. I have
discarded a lot of the preliminaries where it looks for APR files.

Curiously, it appears to have 2 attempts at getting status. The first
one looks in all the subfolders, and also in sub-sub folders. The second
attempt looks just in subfolders. It goes no deeper than sub-sub
folders, so it is not fully recursive, but it does represent a long wait
on my old slow laptop.

Another curiosity is that it looks upwards at the parent folder as well.

First question: What is going on here? Am I doing something wrong?

Second question: Why is it recursing at all? I guess it interprets
status on a folders as wanting the status of the contents of the folder,
so does that mean there is no way of getting only the status for the
folder itself (ie. property changes).
