Are you using a Subversion older than rev 3113? The canonical "."
path handling changed in that version, several bugs like this were

That indicates that a merge has failed several times. If you run the
command 'svn info' on a file that is conflicted you will see the names
of the three conflict files, these are the files that will get removed
when you run 'svn resolve'. If you do something else to resolve the
conflict, say 'svn rm --force' or 'svn revert', these files do not get
deleted. We have to be a little careful about removing these files
automatically, since once they are gone they are not necessarily easy
to reproduce.
