"Checksum mismatch" error is misleading

Hi !

I wanted to check some info in Collab.net's SVN repository. So I ran a
few commands (see transcript at end). Some commands were reporting:

svn: Checksum mismatch for 'www/project_links.html':
    expected checksum: 172bd0af443f52453d9e1560d6cd403e
    actual checksum: 6c9a23c8b535dc7cbb1ba90b5da81881

At first, I thought the checksum mismatch was in Subversion's own
repository. Then I had the idea of trying to use https, and then things
went fine.

This error message should say where the error occured - network or fs
backend or wc. Those are the three places where it can occur, if I
remember correctly, right ?

Thanks !
François
