I've noticed (mainly on Windows) there are three major issues that tend
to screw up the WC.
- write protected files (e.g. another tool is marking files in your WC
read-only
- case issues (e.g. the repository has items that differ only by case,
the WC can't deal with it on systems with case-insensitive file systems)
- check-ins that succeed in updating the repository but fail to update
the .svn folders in the WC. This seems to happen easily, likely as a
result of moves/renames that were done in the WC without using
subversions move/rename command.

I think Subversion should handle the write protected files issues much
more gracefully than it does now. The case issue should be sorted out
too, but it seems to be more involved.
The check-in issue gives a very cryptic error message at the time of the

check-in and from that point on the WC is hard to make sane again
without simply deleting it entirely and making a new one.
