svn "blind" to modifications

Hi there,

Before sending a bug, I would like to make sure whether this issue has been
already encountered.
When I make a bulk change on sources using GNU sed and its "in place" change
switch, like the following:

$find src/ -type f -exec sed -i 's/const char/unsigned const char/g' {}\;

...then a following "svn ci" has simply no effect. Performing a "svn co"
tells me I am still at the current version (nothing is downloaded: the
modified files stay as is).

Any idea ?

"svn --version" on the client AND the server says the following:

svn, version 1.4.6 (r28521)
