Intermittent Commit Error

I get, every so often, a very strange error when trying to commit into
the repository. Here's the error:

david@piccolino:~/javastuff/eclipse-3.3m6/workspace/mediaservice$ svn
commit -m "test"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Your file or directory 'actions/ItemActionImpl.java' is probably
svn: The version resource does not correspond to the resource within the
transaction. Either the requested version resource is out of date
(needs to be updated), or the requested version resource is newer than
the transaction root (restart the commit).


1. I'm the only person working on the repository presently.
2. The local file is more up-to-date that the remote file.
3. Both client and server are running 1.4.3
4. Server and client are both Linux (Server = Redhat, Client = Ubuntu)
5. Both machines have similar dates (the client is a few seconds ahead)
6. Running svn cleanup doesn't help.
7. Running svn up and then svn commit doesn't work

The only solution I have found is to temporarily copy the file to
another location, svn remove the present file and svn commit. Copy the
present file back again and svn add and svn commit again.

It happens about 4-5 times a week, and not only on the file given as an
example, but with other files as well.

Below is the Apache access log of me trying to commit the file: - - [25/Apr/2007:08:39:24 +0100] "OPTIONS
