Can you be more specific? It's hard to understand what you mean.

Can you list the directory tree in some unambiguous and utterly
obvious fashion, like in the example below? Thanks.

                dirB (External to http://XYZ)
And make really clear how the tree conflict came about?

For a good problem report, it's important to assume that we are
really dense and not able to second-guess anything.

Looks like a bug that is triggered by something in your directory setup.
Are there NTFS junctions involved?
Would it be possible for you to set a break point at the assertion
in a debugger to get the values of dir_path and victim_path at the
time the assertion fails?

Have you tried running 'svn cleanup' before reverting?
