Sorry for jumping in, but I saw something that I didn't understand. You
removed the A/D/H directory completely... so why does your 'svn st -u A/D/H'
command show A/D/H/psi as *not* missing?

Here the update command added both A/D/H and A/D/H/psi. I would've expected
that either the 'svn st -u' command would've shown both as missing or only
A/D/H as missing and not even mention A/D/H/psi. Considering the fact that
you said it was the union of a) and b), I would expect both to be listed as
