Chronic "file not found"

Hi there. I'm running a small SVN server for a team of game developers.
All of the team is using TortoiseSVN for their client. The programmers
have been using the system for a couple of months now, and are pretty
comfy with it. However, as soon as the artists started committing things
to the repository, all hell broke loose. They immediately had naming
problems (capital-lowercase collisions, etc.), and other disasters. We've
done our best to clean up after the hurricane, but we're still getting
chronic, rolling errors in the artwork directories. I've heard reports of
repeated working copy locking errors from the gang, and whenever I try to
update the artwork directories, I get an error that looks like this:

        REPORT request failed on '/svn/!svn/vcc/default'

        file not found: transaction 't6', path '/my/path/to/Broken.psd'

Now, that file is IN the directory, and IN the repository, and if I delete
the file from my working copy, and then do an update on the folder, I get
the same bloody error, yet, it somehow manages to grab the file, anyway.

Does anyone have any clues why this might be happening, or how to clear it
up? My team is starting to be a bit unimpressed with their tools, and I'd
like to restore their faith in the repository, lest I come back and find
them worshipping a golden calf. :)
