Just another data point - I just realized the same thing has happened on one of
my replicated repos and it isn't up to date. This was on a CentOS server with
the rpmforge 1.6.x RPM installed. I'm going to try to dump the copy up to
several revs before the problem file changed, load it into a new repo and see if
I can make svnsysc pick up from there. Or just resync the whole mess from the
other side of the world if that fails. If you find some cause for this or a way
to avoid it again, please post it.
