A "file exists" error even when file does not exist.

Hello folks,

I'm trying to add a file of a certain name to a folder in one of our
repositories. However, when I do I get a "Commit failed (details
follow): File '...' already exists". I've searched on the problem, but
previous reports were answered with "well, do an update first!" In
this case, at least, that's not the problem: I'm updating immediately
before the attempt, and no file of the same name exists.

Now, a file of the same name existed in a past revision and was later
deleted. I assume that's not the problem, however, because it would be
pretty silly if any time a file was checked in its name was reserved
forever, even if deleted.

Any ideas?

Thanks,

John Thile
