This is not a bug, it's working as designed. If random directories
are missing within the .svn directory we cannot expect subversion to
be able to recover from that. Sure, if the tmp directory was empty
just recreating it would be fine, but you can't be sure that was the
case, what if there were files in there that we needed.

My suggestion, get better tools that don't delete empty directories.
