Yes, but only when the checkin was wrong. For all other checkins, it's *less* work. Hence, a committer needs to basically fudge up every second checkin to cause more work than he relieves work. :)
Reviewing the checkins is not work, then?
Well, yes, so OK, not half. But quite a lot of the checkins need to be bad for the amount of work the established commiters need to do per bug fixed to increase when you add a newbie. Yes, maybe the workload in total increases in the beginning, but that's because the newbie is actually fixing bugs, and as Stephen mentions, it's often itches no one else (read the established committers) cares about, because they didn't encounter that particular issue.
I have a problem seeing that as a bad thing.
