I have had this happen sometimes but I have been unable to reproduce it on
demand (thus no bug report). If it really is what happened to me, the
problem is that the .svn/tmp directory does not exist. I have been able to
get up and running again either by:
* deleting the entire directory tree that the problem .svn directory exists
in and running 'svn up'
* if you have modified files that need to be preserved, I was able to get
things back by manually creating the .svn/tmp directory. However, be
warned, that if you have a problem in one directory chances are that you
have problems in all of them. I did what I had to do to get my modified
files checked in. then I deleted the entire WC and did a clean checkout.
Don't like fiddling around in what should be system areas.

Note to devs: This has only happened twice in all the months that I have
been using subversion and as I said I have been unable to reproduce it or
you would have heard about it.
