First: version 1.7.x is very old. Your customer should update soon.

Since missing files are different for different checkouts, I assume that
it's a virus scanner that's interfering with the checkout. If the virus
scanner has the file open and svn tries to write copy over the temp file
where it gathered the data during checkout, the file will be missing.
And yes: virus scanners behave differently for UI processes than for
console processes.
