Yeah, if I had more time I probably should fiddle with it. Our one guy here
on Windows using Tortoise has no issues with the same file, so it is indeed
a problem specific to Mac, as Stefan pointed out. Given that the issue
presents itself in Terminal and NetBeans IDE, it's safe to say any other
graphical SVN client on Mac would complain, too, but I didn't test it. IIRC
the graphical clients are using the command line under the hood.
