What is UDS in subversion? (Strange issue in SCC SVN client PushOk)

We are using a MSSCCI to SVN client (PushOk) which in the version 1.7.13 and with our project does strange things.
I do not exactly know what is done on the SVN level, but with the SccProjectOpen() call, outdated local copy files get somehow "updated" (which they should not). Strangly only the base file and the meta (.svn) data get updated but the "real" working copy file remains unchanged, rendering this file "locally modified".
The only indication I have from PushOk is that it is printing
in its status box.
Does that look familiar to someone?
Could that be SVN messages from callbacks that are shown here?
Instead of your projects root folder always UDS<some number> is printed where as the <some number> does NOT change for one SccProjectOpen() call but does change for a next call.
I searched "subversion and uds" in the internet and found "uds_path" in some hits. Generally it looked like a session id to me in the first place.
I know I should ask the PushOk folks about what they are doing in their MSSCCI-SVN provider. But communication is basically non-existent (no answers for a looong time).
I am only trying to get hints to understand what is happening and would appreciate any clue.
