BUG: svn out of sync.. but says its not

Hello dev list,

I sent this to the user list first just to make sure I'm not missing
something foolish. Nobody answered the message, so I'm sending here.

I have two machines dev and prod. I have a "Layouts" dir in a working copy
on each. On dev, "svn stat Layouts" returns nothing. On prod, "svn stat
Layouts" also returns nothing. But while trying to track down a really
strange bug, I found that the two contain different files. prod contains an
older file, but when I "svn update Layouts" on either machine, they *both*
say At revision 120.

I then did an "svn cat" on the file in question and the repo has the old
copy (same as prod). Any new copies also are the same as the repo. I know
I could just copy out that file, get a fresh checkout and check back in, but
I'm afraid that there might be more files I don't know about.

I thought about stripping out the .svn dirs and re-integrating, but afaik,
that's a nightmare.

Does anyone have an idea what's going on and how to fix it? Is it a bug? I
have some tars of the Layouts dir from each box if needed. Unfortunately, I
can't reproduce the bug. Maybe the .svn folders would shed some light?

Thanks in advance!


P.S. I've been able to workaround by checking out a new copy and running
diff manually (diff -Nr --brief Layouts Layouts2 | grep -v "\.svn") agains
the two directories.
