I've had exactly this, repeatedly. Similarly it was in a large
scripted operation (reorganising content migrated from CVS in my
case). I never did identify precisely what the recipe for disaster
was. I was copying folder trees from a repo location into the WC,
performing partial removals or modifications of subtrees.

The commits were always correct but the WC was toast afterwards, being
halfway between revisions.
