Files in the .svn folders should not be deleted or edited. These are
required for TSVN to work correctly.

Tortoise would need to compare the current state of the local tree with the one in Subversion and allow to update or committ all the differences exactly like other changes after a tree was checked out. (Info about file moves and renames would be lost)

You can achieve the same result by using "Export" to a nominated directory.

Sometimes, when files in the .svn directories are messed with by users
"Cleanup" cannot execute correctly and it's necessary to "Checkout" a
new working copy to continue working with TSVN. The same would apply
even if you were using SVN from the command line.
