Hi,

I've got exactly the same exception from one of our old wc.
I'm not sure what's the reason for cleanup.
The wc was update-ed from 1.6 to 1.7
I did found some .svn directories deeper in the directory tree.
Maybe the update went wrong?
Can I help track this bug down?
I'm already using a fresh checkout so I'm going to have the wc around if
you wish.

Best regards,
Peter Balogh
