Yes it does. Unless you are storing your working copy on a server, I do
not think it would matter. I do not think Subversion cares too much about
what the time is, just whether it has changed. In other words, when you
checkout/update, it records the file mod time in the entries file. When
checking status, if the time has not changed, then it does not consider
the file to be changed. This is entirely a local check though, it is not
checking with the server or the repository.
