How do you know that? How do you know the working copy isn't extremely
old, and server is trying to send multiple changesets, not just r1443?

Whatever the case, the working copy told the server something that makes
the server think that the 'mca' directory needs to be deleted and

My guess is that either the working copy is really old, or got corrupted
somehow. Run 'svnversion' on the working copy or 'svn st -v' to look at
the mixed-revisions it contains.

More importantly, if you do a fresh checkout (create a new working copy)
by running

    svn co trunkURL -r 1442

followed by

    svn up

Then I'm betting the update will only apply r1443, nothing else. In
other words, there's something majorly wrong with the original working
copy, not with the update process itself. Give it a whirl.
