You say that it got 'almost' done. At what stage was the commit when it
died? If it was at the very last step, then the commit could have been
successful but only the post-commit hook script did not finish. In that
case, your working copy would still think the commit failed, but the
repository already had a successful commit.
Just update your working copy.

And maybe you should consider setting up an svn server instead of using
a flaky VPN connection.
