Thank you for your quick reply. I was afraid to be told to give up on
the approach. :-)

It says "Collecting changes" for thousands of directories.
D:\testing2>bzr commit data\200MB.test -m "test"
Committing to: D:/testing2/
[====== ] Collecting changes [Directory 2] -
It doesn't take THAT long (a few seconds), but still long enough to
wonder if it's really necessary. Even if I repeatedly run that command
on the same file, it always "collects changes" first.
Background: If I monitor every change in the file system and immediately
commit them, I want the command to execute as fast as possible (ie.
without scanning the directories).
