Unable to recreate/delete a file in repository

The users of an SVN repository I administer were unable to re-add
trunk/app/views/user/login.rhtml to the repository. Browing the
repository itself showed an old version, but it did not show up in SVN
Update -- only in completely fresh checkouts.

I renamed the user/ directory to user2/ and created a new user/
directory. Committing login.rhtml to the fresh user/ directory still
failed (but, say, login2.rhtml worked).

This is not an authentication issue. There is also nothing in Apache error logs.

svnadmin recover and svnadmin verify find no problems.

I then tried recreating the repository from scratch by dumping the
contents into a fresh repository. The problem remains.

This is the error:

Adding user/login.rhtml
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/Lava/trunk/app/views/user/login.rhtml'
svn: PROPFIND of '/svn/Lava/trunk/app/views/user/login.rhtml': 500
Internal Server Error (http://localhost)

What can I do to recover? Or to permanently remove all traces of
login.rhtml from the repository so that a new login.rhtml can be
checked in?
