This sounds a little like the problem under Windows where a filename
changes case (eg. Foo.txt renamed to foo.txt) and Subversion "loses" it.
There's a contributed pre-commit script for catching this before it gets
committed to the case-sensitive repo as two distinct files.

It sounds like "svn status" is unable to display the difference between the
repo's idea of the filename and the local filesystem's representation.
