This is a request to reopen Issue 1862 unless it actually has been fixed. I ran into this problem multiple times and it is extremely annoying. My setup: svnserve running on linux (version 1.0.6 (r10360)) accessed via svn:// from A) linux box (same svn version) B) windows (TortoiseSVN 1.0.8, Build 1430 Subversion 1.0.6, (r10360) Steps leading to problem: 1) in a subfolder of the working directory under windows, add file foo.EPS 2) svn update under linux ( realize that latex cant find the figure, curse ) 3) svn move foo.EPS foo.eps ( on linux machine ) 4) update under windows -> "file already exists" error -> problem described in Issue 1862 from thereon As somebody in the thread mentioned, performing an update from the root folder (in Windows) actually fixes the problem. So to reproduce the problem, update the subfolder, not the root folder!
