I moved the files from .svn/wcprops for the files that were causing a
problem. Of the six files in my commit, three of them had the same
problem. Moving the files did fix the problem, as you surmised it would.

Here is a diff of the cached genmsgs.msg file that was causing the
problem as well as the newer one that was created:

< V 38
< /!svn/ver/1/Common/General/genmsgs.msg

It doesn't mean much to me, but maybe it will to you.
If you have any suggestions on things to pay attention to to help track 
down this problem, let me know. It seems to hit me pretty frequently, so 
I'm assuming I'll be seeing it again. I'm ignorant, but it seems that 
the svn:externals aspect might be significant. If you want to take it 
offlist, let me know.
