Aha! This is a valuable recipe, thanks!

It seems that *everyone* reporting this bug is using win32, so I'm
betting this almost certainly has to do with the working copy choking on
case-insensitivity issues. It gets confused about case, and then asks
the repository about a file using incorrect case, and the repository
replies with "file not found".

Can you file this as a bug, Ian? It would be great to sic some svn
developers on this recipe to narrow down the exact cause.
