@ZaherAlthough I like Tortoise SVN a lot, it does have some scary issues in
some builds.
I had a build of it that actually checkedout files that had the same name
into the wrong directories from a local repository. No idea how or why but
it did it.

If a bad build screwed up your local copy, svn commands probably won't help
you much.

Look at the changelog of TortoiseSVN theres some pretty serious bugs that
were fixed in it.

Take care
