Upgrade of working copy by Subversion 1.4.0

I've read the following message in the release notes of Subversion 1.4.0
and I'm trying to figure out when Subversion 1.4.0 upgrades a existing
working copy.
- Due to various improvements made to the working copy library, the
working copy format has changed. Using Subversion 1.4.0 on any working
copy created by previous versions of Subversion will SILENTLY upgrade your
working copy, which means that previous versions of Subversion will no
longer be able to read it.
This is what I did:
I created a working copy with Subversion 1.3.0 and edited a file in that
working copy.
Then I installed Subversion 1.4.0
I modified another file in the same working copy.
I uninstalled Subversion 1.4.0 and installed Subversion 1.3.0 again.
The working copy was still readable with subversion 1.3.0. An svn status
showed both modified files, and even a commit was possible.

Given the release notes, this is not what I expected. Can anyone explain
why I don't see any evidence of the upgrade.

With kind regards,
Piet-Hein Peeters
