Sounds like it might be a case-sensitivity issue. Is there an 'entries'
file/folder in both revisions? Does one of them have a different case
in the name--'Entries', for instance? Windows doesn't allow for
case-sensitive file names, and Subversion doesn't give a very helpful
error message when it runs into such a problem.
