Visual studio project cannot be merged - by a newbie

This is a newbie question. it involves a test scenario using a repository
for an MS Visual Studio 2003 solution/project, without any subversion
integration in Visual studio - just getting started with svn, still learning
to use it. Here's the scenario with my problem:

0. I have a repository for a Visual Studio 2003 project.

1. I checked out a working copy to directory temp, let's call this working
copy, WC1.

2. I check out another working copy to another directory, let's call this
one WC2.

3. I made changes to a C# file in WC2 and commited them, and I updated WC1
and the committed changes were
merged. no problem.

3. In WC1 I added a new class, a Test class , and added a reference to
NUnit's dll NUnit.Framework. Note this changed the project's binary files.
The project now has a new reference to an external dll, changing the
project's csprojuser and pdf files.

4. In the WC2 directory, I tried to run svn update but, the merge failed
giving the error:
svn: Checksum mismatch for 'repository_name\projectname\obj\Debug\.svn
\text-base\projectname.pdb.svn-base'; expected:
'861d6ac25466fd764772c1a38a7eb612', actual:

Now :
A. What can I do about this? How do I merge both of them now?
B. How do I avoid this problem, and what SVN tools are there to handle this
sort of problem?

Help is urgently needed, as the purpose of this test is to set up a svn
environment for my team. Thanks in advance for any insights.
