The file probably _has_ changed --- really! Subversion does look at
last changed file dates, and if they differ, it compares the file to
the version on check-out. Only if the file's really changed, it is
reported as changed.

What does Diff give you? In case you use TortoiseMerge check the
settings, if you're ignoring whitespace differences. Please set them to the
most strict settings and have a look.

In case you can't find any tiny difference, please report the output of the
svn diff command to this list and the svn-dev list (tsvn switched to
the upcoming 1.1.3 branch recently).

Use Revert to restore the file to the content at time of check-out.
