I think I've understood the concept of "Working Copy" a bit better.

The repository does not contain user data, it contains the version
information of the user data. All the userdata is in the Working Copy
created by 'svn co'.

My initial mistake was to attempt to create the Working Copy on the same
directory where the original data lives. My problem was solved by creating a
temp directory and creating the Working Copy in it leaving the original data
untouched. Does this sound right?

Here's what I did

Create the repository
$ svnadmin create /home/jdoe/svnrepo1

Create a placeholder
$ mkdir /home/jdoe/mytmp

Import your data into the repository
$ cd xdatadir
$ svn import file:///home/jdoe/svnrepo1

Checkout the resource into the placeholder
$ svn checkout file:///home/jdoe/svnrepo1 /home/jdoe/mytmp/

Verify that the data was checked out
$ tree /home/jdoe/mytmp
|-- dir1
| |-- file1_dir1
| `-- file2_dir1
`-- dir2
|-- file1_dir2
`-- file2_dir2
2 directories, 4 files

Then I added text to dir1/file1_dir1 and did a commit, then a 'svn diff' but
nothing showed until quite a few minutes later although the file in the
.svn/text-base directory showed the changes. Why is there a time lapse from
the commit state to when diff shows the changes?

All this while the changes only occur in the Working Copy. I was expecting
that when I do 'commit' the changes would go to the original xdatadir, but
this does not happen.
Everything stays in /home/jdoe/mytmp.

I'm trying my best to put the pieces together so please feel free to give me
any feedback so I may learn this app.

Thanks so far to all that responded. Every response had a bit of the puzzle.
