I went through this on Win 2K using svn.exe at the command prompt. The
only thing I noticed is that you can't delete foobar if the command
prompt current directory is foobar. That's nothing new.

I also looked at the FILEMON log, and I can't say I noticed anything
strange. TextDatei.pas.tmp is closed twice, because it is opened twice
(CREATE counts as OPEN).

Is it possible the problem is that, behind the scenes, TortoiseSVN is
still in the foobar/.svn/tmp directory? That sounds like something that
could be remedied in TortoiseSVN or libsvn_wc.
