Why does svn think that file 'login' should be absent?

I'm trying to add a file named 'login' to a test directory in my
repository. I can add it just fine, and svn info seems to indicate (to
my inexpert eye) that things are ok:

$ svn info
Path: .
URL: http://projects.kempster.org/repos/binder/test
Repository Root: http://projects.kempster.org/repos/binder
Repository UUID: 7b2b5eff-65aa-436a-985b-ac804fb3f248
Revision: 61
Node Kind: directory
Schedule: normal
Last Changed Author: mark
Last Changed Rev: 61
Last Changed Date: 2009-01-28 23:31:12 -0500 (Wed, 28 Jan 2009)

There are a couple files in the 'test' directory there, with names like 'login'

$ svn ls http://projects.kempster.org/repos/binder/test

When I go to check out that directory, only the first file shows up in
the working copy

$ svn co http://projects.kempster.org/repos/binder/test
A test/logi
Checked out revision 63.

test/.svn/entries seems to indicate that the files "login" and
"login.xhtml" are absent. The mailing list has a couple other
questions along this route, but no answers.


So, a couple questions.

1. Where can I find out more about the 'absent' file status?
2. How can I make subversion un-absent a file?
3. What's special about the word / prefix 'login'?

Thanks much for any pointers.
