A colleague of mine has been bitten by this as well yesterday, using
TSVN 1.0.8. Our server is running 0.32.1 (sic) on a linux box and is
accessed via https.

Everybody else has no problem checking out the repository. He has a
locally modified wc and was updating changes from someone else. The
'file not found' message is only given for his locally modified files.
Reverting the local changes to a file makes the message go away for this
file, but 'TortoiseSVN update' will fail on the next locally modified file.

People on this list already mentioned that the problem only occurs when
using absolute paths.
Since the error occured deep down inside the project, I was thinking if
it might be possible to hit a system constant (path length, filename
length) on the client side.
Our apache access log reveals that the files in question indeed have a
long path (>220 characters). Is this a possible theory?
