Are you able to build older versions but not trunk?

This bug does appear to exist on trunk. I think the basic problem is
that we attempt to use the requested depth of the operation to tell us
how deep we have to lock the working copy (ie, only lock the top if
it's a shallow update), but if we're deleting a directory we need to
have the whole directory locked.

We could solve this by always locking all the way down, or by
extending the lock when it is time to delete. (Man, I want a WC where
all locks are deep because there's only one place where you need to
lock them.) Karl, opinions?

Repro recipe attached to issue 3039.
