Ah sorry, I wasn't being clear. This is a situation where a tree-conflict
already exists. Now the test makes sure that running "svn up" skips all
*already* tree-conflicted nodes.

So, if there is a tree-conflict on D/D1, D's THIS_DIR entry will have D1's
tree-conflict info. The case in question now is, if you cd into D/D1, then
run an 'svn up ""', should we go walk outwards from D/D1 to D/ (and to the
working copy root), to check whether any ancestor is currently
tree-conflicted? We'd need read locks on them too, right?

I think eventually we'll have to do either this, or to walk the complete
subtree of each new tree-conflict, marking it as "tree-conflicted-ancestry"
or something, again removing that flag everywhere when resolving.

Or we say: "When you have a tree-conflicted dir, don't go inside it please
before resolving it", well, something like that. And wait for wc-ng, where
hopefully it might be simpler to store such information.
