Re: confusing 'svn update'

Was the version of the file in your working copy untouched (unedited, and exactly as the file was before Billy Bob made his changes?) ?
  That is the only reason I can think of that subversion would not update it your area - If you change it it won't update it, assuming you need your mods in tact.
  Sorry I can't help you more - If you send the exact commands as suggested by Matt -maybe we can help more.

bash script (or similar) that starts out with creating a repo and then
does what the two users do.
Prose does not really help us debug whats going on - and your case is
indeed strange.
