This is the same problem I reported,
entitled something like "Wiki problems
with pair programming". I.e. my motivation
is different, but the cause
- wiki tools having problems when
different users perform write-like
operations in the same view
- is the same.

Supposedly fixed in a recent release
- 1.0.2? I was about to say that I am
not running that release, but I am
- my susadmins must have updated.
... Anyway, just tried - better,
but I am still getting similar problems
(which I will report to the group
in a bit when I can develop a smaller
problem report).

Probably not. I have to fix this problem
two or three times a day.

I usually do it by finding the appropriate
files under .svn - which are usually owned by User2
- and doing the following as User1:
   mv .svn/FILE .svn/FILE.ownership-problems
   cp .svn/FILE.ownership-problems .svn/FILE
and, later
   rm .svn/FILE.ownership-problems

So far something like the above,
and maybe a few svn cleans,
has been sufficient to fix up a broken
working view.

Also: nearly always Subversion has updated
the working view; it is nearly always just the
.svn files that are broken.
