It depends on whether you're accessing a local repository or using
client/server mode.  In client/server mode, the client reports the
unknown files as it builds the list of files to send to the server, then
the server reports the status of the known files.  In local mode, the
directory is processed only once, so the unknown files are intermixed
with the known files.
