Subject Subversion update error
Date Mon, 05 Dec 2011 10:06:28 GMT

I got this error message while doing an update using TortoiseSVN. The 
folder being updated was using the new WC format.
Here is the version information from the TortoiseSVN about dialog:
TortoiseSVN 1.7.1, Build 22161 - 64 Bit , 2011/10/21 22:51:59
Subversion 1.7.1, 
apr 1.4.5
apr-utils 1.3.12
neon 0.29.6
OpenSSL 1.0.0e 6 Sep 2011
zlib 1.2.5

The Subversion server version is: 1.6.12 (r955767)

The error message:
