I've occasionally had something hose a .../.svn/tmp folder (I usually
blame the virus scanner or indexing service, since I'm on Windows).
Usually all I need to do to get the working copy up and running again is
to recreate that folder and then do an 'svn cleanup' and 'svn update'
(because it's usually during an update that it happens).

Why, pray tell, can't the 'svn cleanup' or 'svn update' commands
automatically recreate the 'tmp' folder themselves if it doesn't exist?
The folders are usually empty anyway, so it doesn't really seem like a
critical failure.
