I thought it might have something to do with the conflict annotation
so I edited it out, but that didn't help. Then I edited out the
entire entry and deleted buildcheck.sh and
.svn/text-base/buildcheck.sh.svn-base, and now it isn't coming back
anymore when I do 'svn up'. But it's still very strange.

Unfortunately, the update logs have scrolled away.

The comment above svn_time_to_nts says that the goal is to encode all
the information in an apr_exploded_time_t, and it does succeed in
doing that. What I guess I'm saying is that for SVN's purposes I
don't see any point in recording the day of week, day of year, DST
flag, or GMT offset.

Hmm, looks like this has already come up - see the todo comments at
