This assumes that file timestamps only have one-second granularity.

I don't think the design intent of svn is to only support one-second
precision, since it uses apr_time_t with microsecond precision.

I suspect that the results you're seeing are due to a svn or apr bug, or
a filesystem with low-resolution timestamps. What filesystem and OS are
you using?
