Problem with changes lost

I'm using SVN for about a half a year with great success and my team
(5 people) has commited around 4500 changes. We are using SVN 1.4.0
with mod_dav_svn in a Win 2k and TortoiseSVN.

At first the idea of non-blocking files was disturbing, but the
dynamics of the group has been well and we faced to small quantity of

However, today an user informed me that he lost the changes done to a
file three days ago.

Looking at the log in TortoiseSVN I have found another user who
commited changes to the same file. We asked the second user about the
lost changes and she say she made an update form the repository, made
some changes and then made a commit.

Apparently, when she made the update the merge did not happen. And
when she commited, she rewrote the first user changes.

Is it possible? Our biggest concern is that this problem may happen again.
