svn rm only schedules the deletion. You have to commit it for it to take
effect.

It sounds like you would have wanted to run svn revert to undo the copy,
not svn rm. Unless Subversion treats this as a special case, you would
then have to follow up the svn revert with a regular "rm" to remove the
file from the working copy as Subversion is conservative about potentially
destroying data.
