I'll see if I can reproduce the problem. Here are the exact steps:

1. Billy Bob modifies file on his laptop in his work area. Full path is
/foo/bar/foobar.pm. He is sitting in the /foo/bar directory. He
commits these changes.

2. I go to /foo/bar on my laptop. Execute 'svn update'. I do not get a
new version of foobar.pm. I remove my copy of foobar.pm. I execute
'svn update.' I get a new version of foobar.pm that contains the
changes Billy Bob put into the file.

This should be easily reproduced. I'll try to do that and post back my
results.
