It sounds almost like you somehow managed to replace a symlink with a
real file, without Subversion completely noticing it. Or, you checked
out a Unix symlink onto a Windows computer (Windows cannot support
symlinks), then overwrote its contents.

I agree with Garrett that I would try to delete the file by accessing
it over the URL. Then you can recreate it properly. As to your broken
working copy, probably easiest to trash it (or at least the
subdirectory where the problem occurs) and get a new one.
