You mean in explorer? If you still see a missing file in explorer, then
that means that the explorer just hasn't noticed that the file is gone.
Hit F5 to refresh the view, and the file is gone.

Sure, because the file is *gone*, and the explorer then passes invalid
data to the shell extension. Well, not quite: it tries to pass the data,
realizes that the file is actually missing and aborts.

In explorer, it's impossible to implement. Explorer doesn't know
anything about missing files, because it doesn't know Subversion.
