# "Invalid change ordering" when copying SMB-mounted wc to server

I encountered the "Invalid change ordering" problem described at
http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2005-01/1911.shtml, and (at maxb's
suggestion) thought I'd mention it. Unlike the original poster, I
hadn't done anything bizarre to my working copy.

But: I'm accessing the working copy remotely via SMB. That is, I did
"svn co" on a laptop, and then on my main machine I did "net use *
\\laptop\d", changed to that network drive, and did lots of editing,
checkins, and so on on the network drive (all of which worked fine).
Eventually I did "svn cp . svn://server/branches/foo", which failed as
described in the post I cited.

I worked around the problem by doing "svn cp svn://server/trunk/blah/
svn://server/trunk/blah is the directory that corresponds to the wc),
followed by the usual "svn switch svn://server/trunk/blah/ ."

Everything else I've done in that working copy before and after the
"cp" has worked fine; only the "cp" failed.

Now that I think of it, I wish I'd tried the "cp" from the laptop, to
see if that too failed. Ah well.
