Problem committing .doc files

Hi folks.

I've asked in the #svn channel on irc.freenode.net about this and was
told to post this question to the list. As far as right now, I haven't
found a solution that won't corrupt my working copies (and possibly my

When I edit a .doc file using MS Word 2003, on occasion I get the error
stating my "working copy may be out-of-date." This message repeats even
after I 'svn up' and try to re-commit. The only 2 solutions I have
found are:

1.) Renaming the file, adding the file, committing, and removing the
old file.

2.) Deleting the .svn/all-wcprops file will allow me to commit (I found
this on google, and I am aware that tinkering with anything in the .svn
directory is a very bad idea -- so this isn't my choice solution).

I am using TortoiseSVN 1.4.5 on Windows XP Home, and the server runs
Subversion 1.4.4 compiled from the FreeBSD 6.2-RELEASE ports.

Has anyone else had this problem? Is there a way to fix it?
