I cannot reproduce this using either file:// or svn://, with the 1.0;2
command-line client.

Not "freak out", just report that the file already exists. Removing the

I'm stuck at this point. All my efforts to reproduce this have failed.
Will everyone who's experiencing this problem /please/ try to give me a
consistent reproduction recipe, or failing that, at least explain
exactly which sequence of events lead to the error in their case,
including how you check out the working copy?
