We are seeing something similar to this at my company, actually, this was why I subscribed yesterday, too see if this was a known issue.

We are running the subversion server on Windows, and this may have started to occur since we upgraded to the latest version just a short while back. We are using Apache 2.2 and Subversion server 1.6.2.

We have a number of developers working with subversion, often Tortoise but also Subclipse and commandline clients (DOS, Cygwin, etc).

We haven't seen this a lot (yet?), and don't yet know how to reproduce (haven't had the time, really). What I've seen is that one developer says to another that he has committed a new file and asks the second to update - but the file does not arrive in the update. However, the file is visible in show log or browse repository. Deleting the containing directory and making an update makes the file appear.

We are also starting to suspect that a somewhat large merge gone bad a week ago could have something to do with this, there were some files suspiciously missing that the logs still say should be there.

I realize this still is quite short on info, but please let me know what information you'd be most interested in and I'll try to provide.

Best regards,
