The initial scanning/refresh is in general much slower than subsequent refreshes due to the system disk cache.


A manual View|Refresh will be needed, if you are performing SVN operations with another SVN client (i.e. outside of SmartSVN).

SmartSVN is only refreshing relevant parts and with changes to .svn/-admin area it's hard to tell what's relevant. On the other hand, usually, the .svn/-admin is only changed by SVN clients. Hence, SmartSVN has two options:

(1) process .svn/-admin area file monitor events (because they might originate from a different SVN client) and refreshing the entire working copy recursively or

(2) don't process these events (because they have been produced by SmartSVN itself and hence are redundant).

Given commonness of these use cases and performance reasons, we have have opted for (2).
