"welcome to the wonderful world of subversion error messages"

(from what I can tell, the message means that SVN thinks that there might
have been some checksum error somewhere, or some other error at a point
where subversion thinks it's likely that a checksum was involved; to figure
out what's really causing this problem, you probably need a debug build of

deleting the offending directory and doing "svn up" is the easiest way to fix
