I'm quite sure you are mixing up the terms repository and working copy,
right? If not, please ignore the following.

Just take a look at wc.db-journal. The file size of that file is 0 in
all my cases and is a temp file used by SQLite. It would be non-empty
for cases where the svn-process would crash I assume. Further details
see [1].
I assume TM only backs up non-empty files, no?
