Yes, I have an idea.

The only thing I can think of that would cause this behavior is the use
of mod_authz_svn; and indeed, I see you're using it!

My hypothesis is that when you do the initial checkout, you're
authenticating as one particular user, and that user doesn't have read
access to those "missing" 5 files, so they don't come down in the
checkout. (To verify, look at the .svn/entries file within the parent
dirs of the missing files... you should see a flag marking the files as

Then, later on, when you change into the working copy and run 'svn up',
you're authenticating as a *different* user, and thus the absent files
are re-added.

As an experiment, try destroying all of your cached passwords. Just
delete all the cachefiles in %APPDATA%/Subverison/auth/svn.simple/.
Then look and see which usernames are displayed in the authentication
prompts for both the checkout and update.
