SVN 1.8.8 exception

I haven't found any reports posted in the archives that are an exact match to this issue, so I'm posting this here as requested by the error message I received. The error message is as follows:

Subversion Exception!
Subversion encountered a serious problem.
Please take the time to report this on the Subversion mailing list
with as much information as possible about what
you were trying to do.
But please first search the mailing list archives for the error message
to avoid reporting the same problem repeatedly.
You can find the mailing list archives at

Subversion reported the following
(you can copy the content of this dialog
to the clipboard using Ctrl-C):

In file
 line 1039: assertion failed (move_dst_revision == expected_move_dst_revision
 || status == svn_wc__db_status_not_present)

At the time of the error, I was executing an update on a working copy folder. There had only been one check-in since my last update, and it only contained code modifications (no moves, deletions, etc.). My working copy, however, had code modifications, renames, and deletions.

I did find one similar error message posted in the archives:
Posted by Neil BIRD on Oct. 25, 2013. However, this issue was logged against SVN v1.8.3, and the response claims it should be fixed in 1.8.4, so I'm posting at again so that it stays on the radar if it's still an issue.

BTW, I'd appreciate being CC'ed on any replies to this thread, since I'm not a subscriber.

Note: I also posted this exact same error on 7/9/14 (at the time I was running TortoiseSVN-1.8.6).
