Top priority is to make the problem go away, permanently. Figuring
out how it got there would be a bonus.

Yes, that works. I can fix the properties file by hand, and the
repository then appears to work normally.

This occurs every time I check files into the repository. So the
procedure now is to svn commit, fix the revision properties, move the
broken .svn/log, svn cleanup, and svn update to update the revision
number (which didn't get updated in the broken svn commit); which is
too painful to do every time.

It appears that this error occurs only over file:// and not over
svn+ssh://. Since it looks like tracking down the problem will be
difficult, maybe I'll just switch over to svn+ssh. Are there any
relatively easy tests I can do to see where the author might be
getting messed up when accessing with file://?

Thanks,
Jeff
