[TSVN] commit of missing files automatically selects removal

Another question (without the old issue with disabled dragging and
copy/paste solved):

In our project, we have a directory containing .tex files that are
make-d to a .pdf file. This pdf file is also tracked under version
control. Issuing a "make clean" removes this pdf file.

In such a situation, if someone wants to commit the contents of the
current folder, TSVN assumes that the missing pdf file wants to be
removed and checks the checkbox. If someone forgets to uncheck this box,
the file is removed from the repository. grrr. Some person then has to
actually notice this fault and replace the file.

What's the logic behind automatically selecting missing files for
removal? I mean, if a new file is present it's not selected for addition
either, sure, but why *automatically* remove (or select for removal) a
file that's actually under version control? Shouldn't the tool be more
careful and require *explicit* action of the user if an operation like
removal is to be done on a file under version control?
