I have been bitten by this multiple times. Usually as a result of
manually migrating some projects from Visual Source Safe, where files
are usually set read-only when you get a working copy.

I've brought it up on this list twice, but those posts have been
ignored. :(

It seems it is fairly easy to corrupt the working copy with a simple
mistake, whereas the repository is well protected.
