Hello Philip,

Sometimes the workaround works, sometimes it doesn't.

Here's a log of a trial I have just done with a relatively fresh repository:

C:\>svn co https://aapleng1/Subversion/Playground/trunk/ \SVN_Test
A SVN_Test\test.txt
Checked out revision 897.

C:\>cd SVN_Test

 Volume in drive C is OSDisk
 Volume Serial Number is E49F-06D7

 Directory of C:\SVN_Test

12/08/2013 09:54 AM <DIR> .
12/08/2013 09:54 AM <DIR> ..
12/08/2013 09:54 AM 20 test.txt
               1 File(s) 20 bytes
               2 Dir(s) 160,268,779,520 bytes free

C:\SVN_Test>copy test.txt test2.txt
        1 file(s) copied.

C:\SVN_Test>svn add test2.txt
A test2.txt

C:\SVN_Test>svn ci test2.txt --message "test 1.8.1 checkin"
Adding test2.txt
svn: E155011: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: E155011: File 'C:\SVN_Test\test2.txt' is out of date
svn: E175005: File 'test2.txt' already exists

C:\SVN_Test>svn --version
svn, version 1.8.1 (r1503906)

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network protocol.
  - with Cyrus SASL authentication
  - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme
* ra_serf : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV protocol using serf.
  - handles 'http' scheme
  - handles 'https' scheme


Again, server version is 1.2 (yes, yes, I will update this at some stage in the near future, but apparently I also have to update Apache, which adds an extra layer of nuisance).

This was the first time this repository had been touched since 2009.

"test.txt" is a standard ASCII text file containing the sentence "A quick test file." with one carriage return.

I hope this helps.
