Are you just testing or is there actual data in this WC that you need
to get into your repository. If it is on a live server, it sounds
like you may be dealing with server config files or a live website.

Hm. I don't have any experience with doing that. You might just try
moving it back to the original user and see if it works. If you
don't have any files that are important, you also might try staring
at the top level folder of the working copy and deleting everything
except for the .svn directory. then do an update and it should pull
everything back down from the server again. (this is probably a
really bad idea if your working copy is your servers /etc directory)
