I recall a similar discussion on dev@. I seem to remember that the
conclusion was to change svn clean to automatically fix the timestamps in
the .svn/entries file. Either that or it was just anytime Subversion
resorted to a byte by byte compare and the results came back equal it
would automatically fixup the file so that it didn't happen again.

Did you try this with trunk?
