If you are using Eclipse you should consider using Subclipse instead
of TortoiseSVN as it integrates better with Eclipse. From what I
understand Eclipse moves files and folders around and can mess up the
.svn metadata folder, which would indeed result in very strange things

Or you could try a newer version of Eclipse, or ask this question on
the Eclipse mailing list.
