First, set up the experiment:
   SVN mkdir foo
   cd foo
   <create> bar.txt
   SVN add bar.txt
   cd ..
   SVN commit

Next, get rid of the file in the directory:
   cd foo
   SVN delete bar.txt
   cd ..
   SVN commit

   SVN delete foo
   SVN commit

In my opinion the commit should leave the directory foo in a state where it
doesn't need to be updated.

I'm using version 1.0.2 on Windows XP.
