Hi Chin,

I have no problems working with Subversion in Flash.

Normally I don't version SWF, or SWD files, just FLA's
and of course source code, which is kept separate and
just included into movies (since the Flash IDE is
so crash-friendly:)

For Flash <= MX, I find it necessary to occasionally
save FLA's under a new name and then rename back again
to compress size, otherwise they can grow quite large.
(beware of case-sensitivities if or when you do this)

This is a Flash issue, not a Subversion issue, and not
much of a problem if you keep code separate from the FLA.

I'm also a happy user of TortoiseSVN, works a treat.

Scott Lamb kindly provides svn server, bandwidth and
disk space for a FOSS Flash + PHP project I work on,
which your welcome to see for yourself:
