error: file is probably out of date when committing

About 90% of the time that I commit using to our svn repository I am
prompted with the error that the file is probably out of date. The file
is up to date and the only solution is to delete the wcprops files.


This problem is not localized to any particular workstation or
environment as we have encountered this with a variety of OS
installations and configurations and different projects within the
repository. There is not a developer in our dept that has not
experienced this problem (~50 developers)! As a hack we have a bunch of
scripts that go and blow away all the wcprops files when we encounter


Our SVN repository has over 90,000 commits and most of our projects make
heavy use of externals (on the same repository). This problem, however,
is not limited to commits that span across externals and happens if it
is a single file commit or a multiple file commit.


As far as we can tell there is no pattern to this problem. We've even
experienced this on a fresh checkout, modification, update, and commit.


Can anyone shed some light to why we have this problem? (Yes, I have
read the FAQ on this issue which does not apply. And yes, I have read
the newsgroups - no one appears to have a valid solution other than
brute force deletion of the wcprops files.)


Thanks for your help,
