Hmmmm. This can happen when a wcprop gets out of date.

Save that working copy somewhere.

Then, examine the version-resource-urls in .svn/wcprops/*. The format

   K <keylen>
   V <valuelen>

so one property's name/value pair takes four lines. The file ends
with "END".

The values should be pretty self-explanatory. The question is, do
they match the committed-revs given in the .svn/entries file? If not,
you have out-of-date wcprops.

If you blow away the bad version-url wcprops, I'll bet the update

As to *how* this happened, that's a good question.
