The problem is that when you delete something and add it back we think
you really meant to do that. So you wind up with svn delete + svn
add, which is a 'R'eplace in Subversion terms. This means you are
starting a new line of history. So looking at history will not trace
back to before the Replace happens.

If you recompile a flash, trying using the Eclipse refresh option. If
the file was modified it should show as modified. That said, it is
possible to compile something and get the same object. For example, I
will regularly recompile DLL's and copy them over the current versions
and only some show differences. Even though the files are changed
locally, Subversion will only show them as modified if the contents
also differ.
