I believe you just checked out the project1/trunk/test folder under
project1/ folder. Those are two different checkouts and svn will treat them
that way. The only reasons .svn folder gets updated are when you check-in
something from your folder or when you update ('svn up') that folder.
So, basically, if you update project1, instead of checking out a folder
separately, you will be fine.
