As others have stated, that file is something checked into svn.

What svn does is save a pristine copy of the file in the .svn folder but 
appends the ".svn-base" to its name, so it's natural to think it's 
something that svn maintains for itself, but in this case the root cause 
is a poorly named file checked into svn.
