There was a heisen-bug somebody found months ago, whereby the DAV layer
wasn't updating the secret DAV cache it keeps in the .svn/ area.
Specifically the files within the .svn/wcprops/ area. If those caches
aren't updated properly, DAV will start giving errors like this.

An immediate solution to your problem is to just 'rm .svn/wcprops/*'.
A non-existent cache is better than an incorrect cache!

But is there any way to reproduce the problem? What version of client
and server? We need a better recipe than "this happens sometimes".
