Now, I try to revert using SharpSVN, which internally calls svn_client_revert_2(). I give the path of the directory and the file, and a depth of "files". Then I get the Exception Can't revert 'C:\Users\{...}\foo' without reverting children", SVN_ERR_WC_INVALID_OPERATION_DEPTH.

That seems to indicate that reverts of added directories always need --depth="infinity", despite the fact that all existing children are also mentioned in the argument list. The strange thing is that if I change the order of arguments, it works fine.

Wrong mailing list?
