Can you fix it by running 'svn cleanup'?

Well, you've also changed to a different working copy directory, so
the repository isn't the only variable changing here! :-)

Save that working copy before you do any experiments.

Can you check out another working copy from that repository and run
'svn st -v -u .emacs.el' in that working copy? What happens?

This is actually a fairly common situation; it can result from an
operation interrupted at the wrong time. If 'svn cleanup' fixes it,
it may not be a bug at all. If 'svn cleanup' does not fix it, then we
could look at the working copy.
