If you committed to the SVN repository prior to the upgrade, you can create
a new empty directory somewhere and do a checkout from the repository. This
will create a new working copy, and you can then apply the upgrade to that.

Prior to doing the upgrade it may also be a good time to create a tag
directory in the repository, since this represents your wordpress site on a
given version.

Good luck,
