I have never heard of anything like an 'absent' file status in SVN
before, but my 2c is that it might be related to http:// protocol,
rather than SVN itself. What HTTP library are you using (svn --version)?
Are you able to replicate this problem over svn:// rather than just
http://? I just attempted to replicate it using svn://, and it worked
What happens if you try updating the specific 'login' file in your
Ie svn update test/login
