Strange meta-data problem when checking out

From: Jochen Wuttke <wuttkej_at_usi.ch>

when I try a fresh checkout from a shared repository I get the
following error message:
svn: In directory 'prospectus'
svn: Can't open file 'prospectus/.svn/tmp/text-base/prospectus.tex.svn-
base': No such file or directory

A friend also tried a fresh checkout and got the same error.

I tried 'svnadmin verify' on the repository and it verifies all
revisions. I looked at the files stored in that offending directory
via svnlook to see if someone tried to add the meta-data from .svn to
the repository somehow, but did not see anything that shouldn't be
there (i.e. only the files we need, no meta-data).

I tried google for some hints on what causes this problem and how to
fix it, but didn't find much that is promising. If at all possible I'd
like to avoid restoring a backup, and since all revisions verify, I
wouldn't now which revisions to dump to repair the problem.

Any ideas?
