I had never had every single file in my repo in my working copy. I only have
the files in the directories in which I'm interested. Sometimes recursively,
sometimes not. See checkout's -N flag.

Perhaps I was exploiting a bug, but does anyone have a suggestion as to how

Your use case isn't clear to me. Are your changes (adds, modifications,
deletes) identical across all 5? If not, what is your objection to having 5
working copies?
