That is not an IntelliJ bug, it is a Subversion bug and was fixed in
SVN 1.6.2.  Many GUI clients, including Subclipse and TortoiseSVN were
impacted by it.  You can fix your working copy by checking out again
or getting a SVN 1.6.2+ client and running the command:

$ svn update --set-depth=infinity

via GUI with the Update to Revision ... option.
