I know you stated that, but I've never heard of an instance of this
message that wasn't resolved by "svn update" so I wanted to make
absolutely sure.

Working copies in Subversion are considered disposable. It occurs
from time to time that a working copy becomes corrupted in some way,
and the suggestion in those cases is to check out a new working copy.
It's a useful troubleshooting step.

Ok. And you're absolutely sure that running "svn update" now does not
allow you to commit?

If so, can you provide us with a reproduction recipe for this issue,
starting from creating the repository and creating the initial files?
Otherwise I'm not sure how to troubleshoot this further.
