Yes, I agree, I think it's strange as well.

The files were mostly modified (M). None were svn:externals. I believe
some of the missing files were in the same directories as others that
did show up. (Unfortunately, I didn't actually do the commit with TSVN
to see what happened. I just used the command line client.)

I had done a merge, then modified some files by hand and/or using the
conflict editor. I also changed some ignore lists to tidy things up.

Actually, the same phenomenon happened again today (this is the third
time). Later, I did a plain merge without any modifications (nothing at
all needed to be done) and the commit was fine that time.

I think this could be quite a serious problem. Unfortunately I couldn't
think of a specific reason/recipe for why the files would be missing.

BTW, this happened on two separate machines, but both have very similar
