I did experiment with trying to find a way that updating could bring a
folder in as depth=empty. I tried updating at various levels, updating
folders with property changes, etc. I couldn't find any scenario that
caused this to happen, except for using the "Update to version..." option
and explicitly selecting that level. If anybody discovers a recipe for
such a problem, please post it.

Maybe we can revisit the feasibility of showing the children of the new
folder in the synch view. I do notice that from the command line 'svn
status -u' does include them (I wonder if this has always been the case).
