I understand that. But have you tried checking out an entirely new
working copy? Do you experience the error there?

svn checkout http://www.example.com/svn/project/whatever working-copy
cd working-copy
make-changes-to my-file
svn commit my-file

If that works, then continue using the new working copy and see if
the problem comes back. If it doesn't, great! You've solved the problem.
