I remember I used to wedge my .svn directories using TortoiseSVN - it
was a bug related to the fact that Tortoise cannot change the path or
something - I don't know if it's fixed by now.

However, this happened every now and then, and in the endeffect the only
solution (without manually editing entries fiels etc.) was to delete the
whole SVN checkout and co again.

Instead of dropping the whole repository, some forced fixup of the .svn
directories might be nice, IMHO.

Regards,
Martin
