Re: scary "file not found" failures

If all someone is doing is constantly updating a subsection of the tree,
and occasionally individual files (via.Tortoise SVN), where would the
potential confusion come from that would cause intermittent failure in this

Is there some mistake you can make during setup that would cause
intermittent failure at runtime? (Maybe something to do with the file
system of the server being FAT32 instead of NTFS or something?). Because
frankly I'm not doing anything complicated enough to mess up when the error
occurs: I'm just right-clicking and selecting update.

I will try to isolate when this bug occurs: it IS happening (sporadically)
on multiple machines in my network.
