Yes, exactly.
I know that depth-empty is sort of meaningless (depending on how you
understand the docs). Depth-empty as far as I understand it is "this
item only", and should be the same as depth-file for files.
That's why I passed depth-empty to the svn_client_update() call in TSVN
when I updated a file which failed to lock due to the file being out of
date. I've changed that now to depth-files, but I think the working copy
should not break because of that.
