Is it a bug that subversion tries to remove the wc root from within itself but fails

I have noticed that if 'svn delete .' is invoked within the wc root
itself subversion tries to delete it but fails with the error message
being reported:

alex_at_UFO:~/workspace/tmp/www/examples$ svn delete .
D .
svn: Unable to lock 'src'

Where workspace/tmp/www/examples is the root of the wc. Then 'svn
status' reports that . is deleted.

Does it make sense why Subversion should even try to perform such a delete?

Kind Regards,
