RE: Svn update failed

Hi Brian,

Firstly, when I get a message like "The system cannot find the file
specified." I would try to understand WHY ?

I would run "svn status" and that would quickly show that test.txt in
junk1 is "scheduled" for a delete.
I cannot commit this scheduled delete as it has already changed in
Subversion. I would probably "svn revert" this file in junk1. "svn
update" the file to bring it to the current revision. "svn delete" the
file and then "svn commit" it.

Allowing for a delete to be committed, when it is not the current
revision is probably unwise.

If I execute the following (attached as a txt file):
cd \
md c:\junk1
md c:\junk2
svn co http://snidely/svn/test junk1
svn co http://snidely/svn/test junk2
cd junk1
svn del test.txt
cd \junk2
svn propset svn:keywords Id test.txt
svn -mkeywords commit
cd \junk1
svn update

The svn update gives:
 U test.txt
svn: In directory '.'
svn: Error processing command 'set-timestamp' in '.'
svn: Can't set access time of 'test.txt': The system cannot find the
file specified.

Try to commit the delete and you get
C:\junk1>svn commit
svn: Working copy 'C:\junk1' locked
svn: run 'svn cleanup' to remove locks (type 'svn help cleanup' for

Then clean up says:
C:\junk1>svn cleanup
svn: In directory '.'
svn: Error processing command 'set-timestamp' in '.'
svn: Can't set access time of 'test.txt': The system cannot find the
file specified.

Now it gets weird...
Delete the junk1 and junk2 folders and re-run the test. All is well.
Now, from the junk1 folder, commit the change. Then re-add the test.txt
file and commit the add.
Now, delete the junk1 and junk2 folders and start over. The problem is

Can anyone tell me what's going on?
