[tex-live] svn checkout breaking partway

Hi all,

I was trying to check out a clean copy of the svn trunk so I can do
test builds on new a freebsd amd64 installation when svn checkout
started choking on me...

in Master/bin:
svn: In directory 'i386-freebsd'
svn: Can't change executability of file 'i386-freebsd/bg5+latex': No
such file or directory

On my other tree, svn update worked fine, but it'd choke with the same
error if I move the i386-freebsd/ directory and fetch a fresh one.

it also locks the directory and complains pretty loudly if you try svn

svn: In directory '.'
svn: Can't copy '.svn/tmp/text-base/dvitype.svn-base' to
'.svn/tmp/dvitype.tmp.tmp': Unknown error: 0

I've never seen such an svn error before, so I have no idea what's
going on. it's happened on svn 1.1.4 and 1.1.6 on freebsd and a linux
