didn't change our workflow I think cases 1 and 2 of the mentioned FAQ
can be ruled out. Of course we're updating the working copy whenever
this problem occurs but still this issue is reappearing.

can also rule out case 3 (otherwise we would see something updating
when running an "update" on the working copy. And I also checked the
This problem has not just happened once but it's an ongoing issue.
I know it's strange, but it really seems that Tortoise compares to the
revision of the whole repository, not only the revision of the branch
or the revision of the nodes that are about to be committed.
