Switch breaks working copy bug?

From: Bill Soudan <bill_at_soudan.net>

'svn switch' seems to break your working copy under the following
circumstances:

1) you have a file exclusive to a branch in your current working copy,
let's call it file3
2) this file lives a few directory levels below root
3) you modify this file, leaving local modifications
4) you switch to a branch that does not contain this file.

At this point, svn switch reports "svn: Won't delete locally modified
file 'file3'", as expected, but then:

5) you switch back to the original branch

svn will report a "svn: File not found: revision '5', path
'/trunk/longer'".

I've attached a script that you can use to reproduce. #2 above is key
-- if the file is in the root or only one level below root, the
operation works as expected.

Should I file an issue?

Bill
