When I get this sort of problem, it is because cron.mrtg has been added *in
another WC*. So Subversion sees that it needs to update the directory by
installing a copy of cron.mrtg from the repository, but it also sees that
you already have a file named cron.mrtg in the directory.

Of course, if the two were identical, it should be able to "merge these
changes", but it does not. This is a known problem, I'm told.
