quick bug description

I'm trying to get a ViewCVS release done, but ran into an SVN bug. I wanted
to drop off a quick note to the mailing list about it. I don't have a
confirmed recipe, but it went something like this:

(a while back)
[notes]$ svn cp ../STACK .

(tonite)
[trunk]$ svn up
...
(Obstructed update on STACK)

[trunk]$ rm notes/STACK # note filesytem rm, not svn rm
[trunk]$ svn up
... all seems okay
[trunk]$ cd notes
[notes]$ svn stat
A + STACK

Oops! So, I figure to be a smart guy:

[notes]$ svn revert STACK

Now I was totally screwed. .svn/entries didn't list STACK any more. And the
dir entry was "current", so an "svn up" didn't do anything. I had to set
aside my changes, pull a fresh copy, and hand-merge my changes back in.

I'm thinking the right approach is an update shouldn't just look at the
filesystem for obstruction, but also the .svn/entries file for conflicts.

Cheers,
-g
