RE: bug 4035 is not really fixed

Yesterday I left the update running and this morning it was finished. Today I executed "svn status" and saw that I still had some modified files that I have never touched before, then I did the same steps as yesterday and got the same problems:

- I try to revert those changes that I did not do
- the files are deleted and I have to re-create the files, do a "delete from work_queue" and a "svn cleanup"

at the end the files are still reported as modified.

I also tried to delete the directory where those files are and tried an update afterwards to get them replaced but the result was the same: modified files.

Finally I tried to do an "svn delete" in those files and tried to revert again and got the same problem.

The problems I found so far are:

- I did not change the files that are being reported as modified (in fact I never opened them), so the upgrade process must have done this
- The error happens if I try to revert those changes and if I first delete the files and try to revert the deletion

Is there any query I can run on my wc to help identify the problem?

There were the steps I followed to get to the problem:

- I had an old 1.6.x wc that was also not uptodate and had some local modifications (but no modifications in the file I had problems with)
- I did an "SVN upgrade working copy" and everything worked
- I started to do an update from the root of my wc, but since it was taking very long I cancelled it (using Tortoise cancel button)
- Then I tried to update only the directory I am interested in, but it did not work and I had to run cleanup. So far no problems.
- Then, before I started the update again I did a "SVN check for modifications" and this brought me the file I had problems with. Since I did not remember of any changes in that file I decided do execute a "revert" on it, that was when it was deleted.
- After that I tried to do an update and cleanup but nothing else worked.

I'd really like a more complete description of what you did so that we
can reproduce it.
