Is that really true? A colleague managed to scrap his woking copy by
doing the following.
- svn up -> so there are no uncommitted changes.
- "svn add foo" a folder inside his working copy
- suddenly notice that there was a subfolder (foo/bar), that he didn't
want to add.
- "svn revert ."
- remove the annyoing subfolder (bar)
- retry to add foo -> "svn: warning: 'foo' is already under version control"
- "svn ci" -> "Working copy 'D:/TESTPR~1/xxx/foo/bar' not locked"
- "svn cleanup" -> no comment

D:\TESTPR~1\xxx>svn st
A foo
! foo\bar

now he can't get rid of foo and bar anymore. The only solution we found
was to to a fresh checkout and start from scratch.
