Haven't had this particular issue but I wonder if AnkhSVN (Visual
Studio plugin for SVN) helps filter this out. I've only ever used VS
with AnkhSVN installed, so maybe that's why I don't see it?
-----------------------------------------------------------------
I've used subversion and Visual Studio 2003, 2005 and 2008 for quite a while and never ran into this problem. Do the .svn folders have the Hidden attribute? Do you show hidden files in explorer? It's the only possibility I can think of that would yield the results you describe. I even ran a search as you suggest an it didn't look in the .svn folder. I do not show hidden files and my .svn folders have the hidden attribute set.
