Hi, probably you have figure out the problem, but if not...

I have the folders debug and release versioned on tortoise because i wanted
to have the setup.msi versioned too. But when you build your project again
it deletes the folder (debug/release), deleting everything that it's inside,
including the folders .svn with all the information. -> that's the problem

And afterwards it creates a new one with the files (debug and setup.msi).

My solution it's that I change the place where to put the output files, out
of the debug or release folder.

I hope it helps.
