This has been puzzling me too. I was going to post about this, but I
thought it likely due to my misunderstanding of how subversion
works. So, just to make sure I am understanding this correctly:

1) The deletes sent to the working copy were in fact redundant. So the
local .svn *was* fully up to date with respect to that. Once this
buglet has been fixed, no D messages will be sent on doing `svn up' in
a similar situation.

2) In that case, was the problem only that the revision numbers were
not synced up to the latest version across the entire directory
subdir1 (even though the files themselves in this case were up to
date), so it was just a matter of updating the revision numbers for
the files in the working copy of that directory (subdir1), and nothing
else? Since, as you said in another message to this thread:

 1. you cannot delete a file or directory which isn't at HEAD
    revision in your working copy.
