SVN file checkout is empty… But it isn't!

I encountered an odd issue yesterday and I'm looking for advice on how to resolve it. A developer performed a commit in Eclipse of over 200 files for a project. Jenkins checked out the project but failed to build because one of the source files was empty. I checked out a fresh copy of the project using Eclipse, CLI on a Mac and CLI on Ubuntu. Only in Eclipse did it check out a non-empty file (as it should).
The server is Ubuntu 10.04 with SVN 1.6.6.
Any tips on how I can diagnose why only Eclipse is capable of checking out this file properly? Note that the developer hadn't committed against this file. The other 28,000~ files seem to be fine.
