No need to be like that ;-)

That just jogged my memory. I upgraded from 1.3.5 to 1.4.0 and ran a
cleanup on all my WCs. All ok for a while, then I followed the sequence
you describe. Modified a file (more than 1? can't remember) and added a
file (more than 1? ...) At that point everything went green. Killing
TSVNCache fixed it, nothing else would.

It was not the same day that I upgraded, but I may well have left my PC
on, so TSVNCache would have been running on a 1.3.5 WC and not restarted
after the cleanup. Maybe that is how it got confused? I have not seen
the problem since.

In my case it was on the hard drive. Try doing a WC cleanup, reboot and
see if it ever happens again.
