You are correct, that is not how Subversion behaves. Subversion checks
the timestamp to determine whether to do a full text comparison. If the
timestamp and size of a working file match the recorded values the file
is assummed to be unmodified. If the values differ Subversion does a
full text comparison to determine if the files differ.
