That tilde next to the directory is important. It means that the
.svn/entries file thinks that directory.name is supposed to be a file,
but is actually a dir, or vice versa. I have no clue as to how that
happened... but suffice it to say, your working copy is pretty messed

You say this problem is reproducible on both OSX and Linux... but
what's the recipe? Give us an exact set of instructions so we can
reproduce. Or, show us a transcript of the exact commands you typed
and the results of each command.
