The wc journals are supposed to be idempotent; in other words, when
'svn cleanup' re-runs the journal, it should all just work, even if it
means re-running some journaled commands.

But we've seen an elusive win32 bug related to file i/o. The journal
obviously has a command to copy a specific .svn-base file to a .tmp
file, but the .svn-base file isn't present. This is probably that
mysterious win32 file i/o bug.

Exactly what you did below.
