I'm not Philip, and I've not tried this myself, but:

At line 4, wc/foo is a schedule-add directory. Line 4 removes the .svn
directory, converting it into an 'obstructed' schedule add (not really
obstructed, since that's normally where there's something in the wc that
blocks a repos-wc change, from what I understood). As the comment notes,
replacing the schedule-add directory with a file should do the same thing.

The problem in line 5 isn't that it's removing the admin directory from
wc/foo (which is done in line 4), it's that it's removing the admin
directory from wc/ itself! (which is a little weird).

Regards,
Malcolm
