Just to comment on this a little, this doesn't seem like "hoseage", it's
giving the "!" status on the directory because an update *actually* failed.
But everything works fine after a normal "svn update". I'm not sure what I
would expect "svn cleanup" to do in this situation--I certainly wouldn't
want it to run a new update, and I'm not sure having some kind of revert
behavior is much better.
