Subversion bug.. not checking out files

Im new to subversion(9 months) and ive come across a rather strange
issue in the last 2 weeks. Sometimes (dont know when or how to
reproduce it) a file goes missing on a particular working copy? That
computer (with the missing file)is then also unable to add any file
with that name to the repository.
Meanwhile other working copies are able to see that file? This is made
stranger by the fact that checking out the working copy again (on the
bad computer) doesnt check out that missing file?

About a hour ago other working copies were in gridlock and were unable
to update because of conflicts on the strange file. I found a 'fix'/
workaround where i did...

//on bad computer
svn up // no new files
svn rm svn+ssh://.....badFile.java
svn up //no new files
touch badfile.java
svn add badFile.java
svn co //found badfile.java

//on another working copy
svn up
cp badFile.java.bak badFile.java
svn commit //file modified and commited

//on bad computer
svn up//file updated // all good:)

I have NO idea why this works but mabey it will help you find the bug?
Also, for the record heres the versions of svn we are using:...
- bad computer version 1.6.5 (r38866) (OSX snow leopard.. compiled
from macports.. checked out on earlier version)
- Other working copies:
        - latest version on website windows 7
        - version 1.5.1 (r32289) (debian)
