Exception occured while patch applying:null

TeamCity: Version 3.1.2 EAP (build 6874)

I'm not sure what I changed, but all of a sudden my builds fail on source checkout with the error message "Error while applying patch: null".

Here is the output from the agent log:

INFO - jetbrains.buildServer.AGENT - Getting sources...
INFO - jetbrains.buildServer.AGENT - Requesting patch from server, cleanPatch=true
INFO - jetbrains.buildServer.AGENT - Copying patch to temp file...

I'm not sure what to fix where. Here's what I've done:

1) Manually gone to source folder and deleted all files to get a "clean" source from subversion
2) Restarted Windows
3) Enabled logging

...I haven't done much because usually TeamCity just works :)

What shall I do to help you help me?

Please take a look at server log for the same time, are there any exceptions?

There were no exceptions, just INFO messages. See below:

I just switched from "VCS Checkout Mode: Automatically on Server" to Automatically on Agent and then the build worked. That was the only thing I changed. I'm glad it worked, but anyone have any ideas in case this happens again?
