Several months ago I saw a Subversion thread with a user with
something similar. I was trying to find the thread (and cannot). One
of our CollabNet engineers got a copy of their working copy and the
problem was the "wcprops" which is this bit of data storage used by
Subversion's DAV client were corrupt. So if you are using http://
this could be your problem. I recall a really long time ago that
SVNKit had some bugs updating this information, but Subversion itself
has had them too.

Have you done "switch" at all? Because I seem to remember that was
involved in the source of the problem.

I also seem to recall, but again, I cannot find the thread, that the
user could delete the "wcprops" folders from their WC and Subversion
would rebuild them and that fixed the problem.

The "wcprops" are some kind of cache of the internal DAV URI's that
Subversion uses. So maybe yours were pointing to a different
repository location and that is why to one part of the process it
looked like you were out of date.

This does not really help, but maybe it is the kernel of an answer.
