Subversion doesn't check file ownership (as there is no platform independent way to do this),
so there must be some different reason why you see that you can revert multiple times.

(I'm unable to reproduce your issue with just your script)


Which Subversion version did you try this with?

Does the file have any specific 'svn:' properties set on it?

I'm guessing that it has a 'svn:eol-style' set on it.
The only known reproducible case of this issue involves getting a non-standard encoded EOL
in your repository, with an eol-style defined that should convert it to another style.
