Makes sense. It was first called filter.py.in and generated as
filter.py. You probably build the code and got the generated filter.py.
Then I renamed it to filter.py and you updated your checkout without
first doing a make clean or make distclean (which of course I don't
expect everybody to do each time he or she updates his checkout).
Which made the generated file to already exist whereas Subversion wanted
to create a new file from the repository (because I renamed it). And
therefore it gave a conflict. Simply removing the filter.py would also
have corrected the problem.
Anyway, I'm glad you managed to recover from the problem. :)
