But it is versioned. The .svn folder inside bin is the proof. As Andy
already explained, your tools probably create a copy of the src tree
to bin at some point (during the build, or at some other stage). What
you then end up with is what is called a 'nested' layout: a working
copy that contains parts of another working copy (or even of itself
but from somewhere else in the tree.

To solve it, remove the .svn folders from the bin tree, make sure you
svn ignore the bin folder (like the logs folder has been ignored) and
ensure that the build process ignores .svn folders during its
operations. That final part is essential and not something we can help
you with as long as we do not know what development/build environment
you are using.
