Checksum mismatch errors on newly added files

I know this topic has been mentioned several times over the years on
the list but it does not appear that the problem has been fully solved.

I regularly have problems committing files (typically binary files of
2 or more MB) to my repository as I keep getting errors such as the

Commit failed (details follow):
Checksum mishmatch, file: 'some file':
expected: e42d35e8e05762e7585aff281d2e8c1f
Actual: b57111e7f6c531daf0868f30d202f00e

These errors sometimes occur on files that have been in the
repository for a while but I notice them alot with files that have
not even been committed yet.

I have seen the various solutions such as hacking the svn local files
and copying the file to a temp file, rechecking out the original and
over writing the repo copy with the local temp file but that cannot
work with a file that has not even be committed as yet.

These are workarounds, not solutions and I am seeing this all the
time and is rendering svn a massive pain to use. I've upgraded to
the latest version and am still seeing the problem.

Does anyone have a proper solution or reason why this happening?

Best regards
