When trying to do an svn up I get the normal At revision XX even though some files are missing, the missing files do show when doing an svn list example:

$ svn list
> persistence
$ ls
> persistence
$ svn list
> persistence/
$ svn up
> Is at revision 55
$ ls
> persistence

The file is not added unless manually running svn up

What is up? Can't I trust svn anymore? Running svn, version 1.6.6 (r40053)

Is there a property asking to ignore this file ? svn propget svn:ignore . should display that. I don't use svn list, but svn status, with the state of the files.

There are no properties set at all and svn status -u does not show the files missing – antonj May 17 '10 at 13:15
If you use -u it check with the update. Check in local (without -u) to see if a special condition is given. – Dom May 17 '10 at 17:29
A normal svn status does not show any edits – antonj May 18 '10 at 9:04
