svn v14.5(r3578) on w2k seems to have a defficiency when you copy a
changed file from another drive into the svn working copy.

this must be an issue with file date/times. newly checked out, the
file gets a new timestamp. if you copy a file with an older timestamp
it thinks it is not modified, which is of course wrong (different
timestamt = chances are good that also the contents is different).

if you resave the file (no change of contents), it notices the

this may result in overwriting your file on "svn up" by an update,
instead of merging changes.
