    Description

      When the .svn\tmp folder is missing in the working copy any action (update, commit, etc.) fails with the message "Unable to create pristine install stream". 

      Obviously it's the users fault when corrupting the hidden, internal directory of SVN. In my case the folders of thousands of working copies were missing after disaster recovery. I discovered that my backup software didn't backup "tmp" folders. 

      I created a work around to create the tmp folder and posted it here: https://stackoverflow.com/questions/35962861/how-to-fix-unable-to-create-pristine-install-stream/65704644#65704644 

      Anyway it would be nice if SVN would catch that exception and try to create the .svn\tmp folder.
