Check the url of your file (explorer, right-click on the file, choose
"properties" from the explorer menu, then go to the "Subversion" tab in
the properties page). I guess it points not to your /trunk folder but
some other, which means you have checked out from a wrong url.
Or you have used the 'switch' command to switch a file or folder to
another url. Or you haven't checked out from HEAD but another revision.

Also, you might have done something while "cleaning up the compilation
errors". What exactly did you do there? If you moved files around or
copied folders without using the proper TSVN commands, you will get an
inconsistent working copy (or even a completely screwed up one).
