How to recover from a "checksum mismatch"

Due to some (yet unknown) mistake, my colleague is experiencing a
"checksum mismatch" error message. Is there a civilized way to
recover from such a mismatch. The solutions I found posted on the web
are all klutches: the mildest being "check out a fresh copy,
substitute the text-base file causing the conflict" and the worst
being "svn delete then svn add".

It seems to me having an "svn revert --force blah" revert everything
completely, including the text-base files is the optimal solution to
the problem (unless another solution exists that I just couldn't

Best wishes,

P.S. Please CC the replies to me, if possible.
