If you want to investigate, here are some ideas

  - Is the date on .svn/text-base/Class.pod.svn-base familiar in any

  - Run md5sum on .svn/text-base/Class.pod.svn-base and compare it
    to the checksum for Class.pod stored in .svn/entries, they should
    be the same.

  - Run svn info on Class.pod and determine the text last updated
    time, is it familiar in any way? Is it the same as the date on
    the text-base? (Note, a difference is not an error, but it might
    help determine what went wrong.)

  - Info also gives you the last changed revision so checkout that
    revision of the directory containing Class.pod.

  - Compare the text-base in the corrupt working copy with that in the
    new one. Is the difference familiar? Are the two text-base files
    the same size?

  - Run svn log on Class.pod and note the revisions at which it has
    changed. Update Class.pod in the new working copy to each
    revision in turn and look at the checksum in .svn/entries. Do any
    of them match the checksum in the corrupt working copy?
