incomplete checkout

Hi all out there!

First of all: I have no receipe for this nor can I say with which SVN
or TSVN version this has happened. But it is something I can
neither explain nor have a solution for. And it might be worth for the

By pure chance I found that in one working copy a pair of files
(14554_d.htm and 14554_e.htm) is missing and is not added with
update either. That machine currently runs SVN .34, but that
should not be decisive. OS is Win2K SP2.

These two files are in the repository, they are in other working
copies, and they are checked out in a new working copy from both
HEAD and rev. 159, too.

The log file shows them being added December 3 last year with
rev. 159 and have not been changed since. Current rev. is 272.
Other modifications and additions of rev. 159 are present. I cannot
tell what versions of SVN/TSVN were running that time.

If I copy the two files into the working copy they are shown as non-
versioned files.

While these two files may have been deleted by accident, they
should have been either restored with next update or deleted from
the repository as being absent with next commit. However, there is
practically no chance that the user of that working copy also may
have deleted the copies of those two files in the .svn folder. Show
hidden files is turned off on that machine and the user does not
have the knowledge to turn it on.

Any idea what might have happened? Or what can be done except
checking out a new working copy (takes about 45-60 minutes) and
hoping it will not happen again?

TIA - Jan Hendrik
