File <filenamewith$> already exists

I'm getting a problem trying to add a file with a $ in it. When I do
the commit, I get a "file ... already exists" error. The file does not
already exist in the repository.

I'm getting this both with tortoiseSVN 1.4.1 on Windows as well as the
svn 1.4.2 command line client on linux. The svn server is 1.2.3 (as
reported by svnadmin ---version) running on linux.

To create this:

$ svn co <somedir>
$ cd <somedir>
$ touch 'abc$def.txt'
$ svn add 'abc$def.txt'
A abc$def.txt
$ svn commit -m 'msg'
Adding abc$def.txt
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: File '/svn/repos/etrms/trunk/tools/abc$def.txt' already exists

We have many files with $ in their names and are having quite a
problem. I've tried to find other mentions of this problem, but don't
see any other references to it.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!
