command line).

Can you reproduce it with any other repository access method? file:// or

Everyone who's seen this problem, please provide the info in John

1) Server O/S, patch level, and drive format (NTFS/FAT32)
2) Server Subversion release
3) Other services running on server (specifically AV software)
4) Mode of operation (Apache, ssh)
5) Client O/S, patch level, and drive format (NTFS/FAT32)
6) Client Subversion release
7) Client services running (specifically AV software)

and also

8) Is the working copy on a local drive or a network share
9) Repository access methor used (file://, svn:// or http[s]://)
