Look in the .svn/ dirs. There are cached 'pristine' copies of every
file. It's a deliberate design which allows you to 'svn diff', 'svn
revert' without hitting the network. It also allows you the client to
send diffs when committing. No, it's not configurable; no, you can't
make those caches go away.
