I wouldn't think this is a server side issue.
To me this error tells (anyone more knowledgeable correct me if I'm
mis-guessing):
 - commit succeeded (-> server side is ok) but
 - when trying to update the working copy to match the new repository state
   (files' rev numbers etc., which are kept in the .svn/entries file),
   svn fails to do so, because it can't replace the entries file.

Could it be that the checkout has been done by a different user than the
check in? Did you have a look at the file permissions of the .svn\entries
file yet (don't touch, just look)?

Best regards,

Andreas
