Strange behaviour for switch to non-existing repo path

I've encountered the following strange behaviour with "svn switch":

When trying to switch to a non-existing repo path, no error message is
printed, and the WC path is deleted. At the next update, the deleted
path will pop up again.

With "non-existing repo path", I mean an URL that points to an
existing repository, but where the path inside the repository does not

The behaviour is persistently and consistently reproducible, and
identical for both files and directories.

Here's a transcript:

  % svn switch svn://svn/system/non-existent realm.c
  D realm.c
  Updated to revision 81456.

  % svn status

  % svn status -u
         * realm.c
  Status against revision: 81456

  % svn cleanup

  % svn update
  A realm.c
  Updated to revision 81456.

  % svn --version
  svn, version 1.3.0 (r17949)
