Whops, sorry, I should have read the Help more carefully.

I found it hard to believe in my case as that developer is the only one
in the whole company to work on that piece of code, and always have
been. So even if theoretically it is possible I don't think this is the
case.
Anyway, we did tried and delete the files, update the WC and then check
for modifications and the messages were the same.

Well we won't upgrade SVN to 1.4 just yet. We need to investigate the
impact of it first, following the concerns outlined in 1.3 release
notes. Therefore we won't upgrade TSVN either yet.

I didn't "expect" support, I just asked for help. It's not like I have
flooded the mailing list with emails. And frankly I found this attitude
of "supporting only the latest version here" wrong. I understand that
people here cannot offer help for all version of TSVN, but not even for
the previous one is on the edge of rudeness, especially when you specify
"anything else would be a waste of time", and the fact I don't have to
pay is not a good reason.
