This might be strangely related to to an incomplete commit of a tree
full of changes very recently.
One file deep in the WC folder tree failed to commit and remained
showing as changed even after all the other files committed
successfully. It was a binary file (dll) that replaced an earlier
version. To be sure it wasn't a TSVNCache issue I killed the cache.
After the new cache instance had completed it trolling the file
continued to show as changed. The file could not be committed either
until I did an update and then it committed OK. The particular folder is
one that is only ever changed when a new version of the vendor code is
release and never produced by local compilation. I have no reason to
consider that that folder alone was not fully up to date unless
something similar to what is described above has occurred.

Didn't have time to investigate further then, so your post above twigged
my memory. (TSVN rev 4653)
