I am not aware of any way for that to occur.

I don't know about TortoiseSVN specifically, but the Subversion
promise is that any 1.x client can work with any 1.x server, so it
shouldn't be a problem. Nevertheless, I recommend you upgrade your
server and client to the latest version (1.6.0) in case this is a bug
that has already been fixed. If you then still encounter the problem,
a reproduction recipe would be helpful, though if the problem is
intermittent, I can see how that would be difficult.
