Obviously.  When I update the first time I get:

Updated to revision 1545.

real    2m46.333s
user    0m5.108s
sys     0m2.280s

and when I try again I get:

At revision 1545.

real    0m40.359s
user    0m4.432s
sys     0m0.732s

I suppose that you get a similar result if you try again.

$ strace -eopen svn update svn/ 2>&1 | wc -l

This takes some time, of course.

Microsoft isn't the answer. Microsoft is the question, and the answer is NO.
