This sounds very much like the conflict that would occur when you'r out
of sync with the repos (e.g. someone else has created file A and
commited before you did).

It might very well be :-)

TortoiseSVN handles this by issuing a series of adds (for each
file/directory in the root folder) with a warning that it will cause
several revisions. I'm not saying this is a good idea, just that it
would fit what my natural way of working (I might very well be the only
misfit ;-)
