Not all the time, but yes, sometimes it does [1]. That's why cleanup
shouldn't just create the directory.



[1] When updating a working copy, a log is created which contains
instructions to update the working copy. (Some) files to be installed
by execution of that log are created in .svn/tmp. If the log is run
without installing these files (because .svn/tmp was empty), working
copy administration and fact go out of sync. This is - clearly - much
worse than reinstating a disappeared .svn/tmp directory.
