Deletion of files *from Subversion* always takes place on commit. When
you SVN delete a file it is deleted from disk immediately, and marked
for deletion in the .svn folder. You can still use 'revert' to get it
back before you commit.

If the file appears with status 'missing' then next time you commit, it
will show up in the modified files list, automatically checked for
commit. If you uncheck it then the delete does not get committed and you
can still revert to recover the missing file from the pristine copy in
the .svn folder.
