Both server and client are this version? What network layer are you
using (e.g., http://, or svn://, or file://)?

When you say "deleting the file", what do you mean exactly? Would it
be possible to describe the steps you went through in more detail?

By the way, when you write "ask svn about transactions", how exactly
did you do that? I'm not surprised the transaction wasn't there (it
probably got removed after the commit failed), I'm just trying to find
out everything you did.

I can't guarantee to be able to help. It may be that the only advice
we are able to give is to do things over, in smaller stages. But at
least it would be good to find out how svn got into this situation.
