Re: Working copy not updated correctly

The copy of the file in .svn/base-text was incorrect. While I have just
started working from a fresh checkout, it would be nice to workout what
caused the problem so it can be avoided in the future. Can messing with the
timestamp of the file in you working area still cause a problem with the
update command not getting the correct modifications from the server?
Although I could have made a mistake somewhere I don't think I've messed
with anything in the .svn directory and I would have thought that any
changes made to the actual working copy file shouldn't effect that operation
