No, it should. But this checkout is actually on a share where two kind
of teams are working on: developers aware of SVN and editors not aware
of it. Since nobody is perfect it happen sometimes that an editor
deletes a directory (when he should tell us). But since it also
sometimes happens to developers too, there no one to blame ;)

Isn't there a way to make this more user friendly? It works with deleted
files, are there limitations why this can't be expanded to directories?
