RE: Broken WC errornously attempts to add an existing file during commit

Hi Mikkel,

the files that are causing trouble are files which are created by the
compiler. It may be that the compiler generated files are detected as
'missing' at some point, because they are deleted and overwritten.
TortoiseSVN also tries to fix/prevent upper/lowercase filename changes on
the client side, which the CL client doesn't. Perhaps its a combination of
the two.

I recommend not to put these files under version control at all. I am
working with Delphi 7 and TortoiseSVN for years now and haven't had any
problem like yours before.

I have set my TortoiseSVN ignores to: *.~* *.bak *.ddp *.dcu *.obj
I never put .res and .exe files under version control and only the .dpr file
(.bpr in your case)

If I understand you correctly, your repository is intact, only the working
copy is FUBAR? So you should be able to check out and do this again? Without
a reproduction recipe we probably can't help you much.

Did you rename any files/folders in the path without committing the rename,
before the WC was corrupted?
