Thank you for your help. The file did indeed turn out to be in
repository twice - in two differenent cases.

I guess this goes back to my issue of committing the files. The changes
happen directly on the file system, and nightly I issue an svn commit as
part of a batch process. The problem, however, is that it doesn't
commit deletiions. Is there still no way to pass a parameter to the svn
executable to tell it to commit the deletions as well?
