Well, one problem may be that most files in the FPC repository have
the "svn:eol-style native" property set. This means that when checking
out such a file under Linux, the line endings will #10, while under
Windows they'll be #13#10. I don't know whether svn may have a problem
with that when updating a copy checked out on one platform on the other.
At least this message says that sharing a working copy among different
OSes is discouraged under such circumstances: http://svn.haxx.se/users/archive-2008-01/0883.shtml

Do you only get it with an update, or also with a fresh checkout? (I
also reproduce it with a fresh checkout)
