Are you sure that the workstations *and* the server have the correct
time (and the appropriate DST fix)? Subversion relies on the system
time being consistent between server and client. One way to deal with
that would be to run xntpd on the server and configure the workstations
to poll that server for their time. Instructions are here:

If you are in a domain environment, you should ensure that the Windows
domain controllers are configured to poll an ntp server (as the
workstations will get their time from the network).
