This means the commit wholly succeeded in the repository, but your
working copy was never informed of the fact. The solution is to

   1. 'svn revert . -R' your working copy and remove all the resulting
unversioned files, so that 'svn up' can re-add them, or

   2. just checkout a new working copy.
