I've done a little more looking, and the 1.5 client writes out
different .svn/entries:
--- perian-1.5wc/.svn/entries 2008-01-29 20:26:25.000000000 -0600
+++ perian-1.4wc/.svn/entries 2008-01-29 22:13:09.000000000 -0600
@@ -1,28 +1,1145 @@

<the rest snipped for brevity>

I'll look and see if I can find where this is coming from, but the
error actually seems to be the wrong path gets written into entries.
If I hand-edit .svn/entries in the 1.5 wc to remove the trailing
slash, everything works and the update proceeds as expected (until it
gets to a subdir, and I have to do it per-run because entries gets
rewritten with the bad trailing slash).

Just wanted to document what I'd found so it didn't get lost, and so
someone else could pick up on it if need be.
