I did run into a problem that I was no aware of and I want to bring this up to attention. Also
I would like to know what is the best way to handle such case since it gave me little problem.

I am developing multi platform system. When I try to add "aux" folder on linux I was able
to commit just fine. Now wen getting update on windows I was getting strange error saying
that aux folder can't be created. Googling I found below link explaining reserved words on
windows.

Now I try to move aux to misc on Linux and committing it. That was fine but still on windows
I was not able to get latest.
It looks like it was updating all changes and (creation of aux) before applying (move aux
mic).
I try to delete misc on linux and committing it. Still windows was complaining. It does not
seems like svn have true "drop" to revision.

I ended up doing svnadmin dump -r 1:$GOOD_VER, created new repo and loading it back. This
is a long process.

Are there any other/better alternatives. I was pressed on time so perhaps I did overlooked
something?
