This is shot in the dark, but are you using exclusive locks and the
svn:needs-lock property? If so you might need to get locks for more than
just the file you're opening.

Subject: Text Inset Problem with TortoiseSVN
My client started using imported text insets for some boilerplate
paragraphs. In the folder tree, the folder of boilerplate source files
is at the same level as the folder of the FM book. Both folders are
checked into TortoiseSVN, an open-source client for Subversion, a
Every time a different writer opens a FM file that uses one of the text
insets, s/he gets an error message from FM saying the text inset is
unresolved. Re-importing the text inset fixes the problem for that
writer. Every writer opens the same FM file and imports the same text
inset, so there's no reason for FM to lose the link. We copied both
folders to a location outside SVN and the problem did not occur, so it
has something to do with SVN.
By the way, the book folder contains a subfolder of Xrefed image files,
and SVN doesn't interfere with those links. We're going to try Xrefing
the text insets instead of importing them, but Xrefing them means we
lose the formatting and markers (Index and Hypertext) in the source
So ... anyone know what's going on here with SVN?
