SVN Can't copy 'XXX.svn-base' to 'XXX.tmp': The system cannot find the file specified.

This error message typically occurs when you try to update your working copy on a Windows system.

The error is caused by a filename collision. There are actually 2 different files in the repository whose names differ only in case. This cannot work on a Windows checkout, because the Windows file system is not case-sensitive. It is likely that one of the files got added by mistake, so you need to find out which one, make sure there are no changes committed to the wrong file, then delete it.
