TortoiseSVN has a log cache based on the UUID of a repository.

When this cache is enabled it assumes each repository has its own unique
If the repositories were created by copying a template to a new repository
the uuids might be the same.

Which in turn can give you errors like these.
(It also makes it easy to mix up repositories when you are switchin; but
those issues are harder to track down)
