Although the answer is irrelevant to Tim's situation, I do not
have a solution to the problems on Windows yet. Most recently
I upgraded my version of TortioseSVN but the problem did not
go away. My next attempt will be to install the cygwin version
of SVN and try it that way. Of course since we don't build
Axiom under cygwin on Windows, that is less than desirable.
Perhaps there is another native Windows version of SVN besides

I believe that this would happen if the files you are modifying
are incorrectly labelled as 'text' files.

I expect this would happen for example to .jpg and .zip files
already in the repository that are not properly labelled as
'binary'. You need to change this attribute in SVN for these
files before doing the commit.
