Transaction errors while updating

Hey all,

Sorry if this has been answered before, but I haven't been able to
locate a solution to my problem. I'm happy to RTFM if someone will point
me at the FM.

We have a large repository with a mix of code, requirement documents,
design documents, etc. Only a relatively small part of the repo is
actually code. To make life easier for the developers, they typically
check out only the code into a local working copy. The repo lives
behind Apache; we hit it with an https URL.

Here's the problem. If a developer tries to update one of the
subdirectories, they occasionally get the following error:

REPORT request failed on '/svn/<repo-name>/!svn/vcc/default'
File not found: transaction '17s', path '/trunk/Development/Toolchain'

Substitute '/trunk/Development/Toolchain' with pretty much any
subdirectory you want. :-) There isn't any consistency as to when the
errors occur. It appears to be random although I'm sure it's not.
Cleaning up the directory doesn't seem to help.

The workaround is to try the update from a parent directory. Often you
have to go to the "root" of your working copy. It doesn't have to be
the actual root of the full repository, just the root of the working

Has anyone else seen this behaviour?
