Can't recall where I got the solution of editing the .svn/entries file
but that worked perfectly for working around the bug. Thanks to who
ever told me that!!! :)


P.S. Having worked on & been a user of, many open source project, I
have to say that this is one of the more informative and responsive user
lists I've ever been on. Please keep up the awesome work! :)

Yes, that's fine. It's the same recipe, but I assume you're trying to
preserve local mods in the original directory. Hence you move it out of
the way before having 'svn up' recreate it.

There's one other way to fix this problem, but you NEVER HEARD it from
me. Certainly not from an svn developer!

* open the corrupted .svn/entries file
* add an xml attribute to the first entry: incomplete="true"
* save, and run 'svn up'.
