I did something similar a few months ago (on a Gentoo system) where an
automated script clobbered the contents of the .svn folder... and I
agree that it's something that SVN needs to be better about dealing
with. I found it to be very difficult to clean up after the .svn
folders get slightly munged.

(Maybe the upcoming changes in 1.5 might deal with strange local .svn
folder issues in a more flexible fashion?)
