It seems you are updating the server. Could it be that you have a sandbox
checked out with the previous version, and then update it using the new
version? If that's the case, it could be that this only happens the first
time you update a file against the new server version in a sandbox checked
out with the old server version. It could also be that updating the client
to the same version that's on the new server might help... don't know, but
worth a shot, since the client update is recommended anyway.

If I'm correct with the above, an email to all users stating that this is
normal in the beginning should probably take care of most of the hassle.
