The usual culprit is a build process or some other script that deletes
folder and then recreates them. If you have such a process, you have to
be sure that the .svn folders inside these folders do not get deleted.
Or in some cases it might mean that you have a folder versioned that
just shouldn't be. See this FAQ as well:
