To be able to select the entries you want to commit, TSVN must commit
those items non-recursively. Otherwise if you commit a change in the
wc root folder, *all* other modifications in all other files would get
committed too.
So, as soon as you uncheck at least one of the items shown in the
commit dialog, TSVN must to a non-recursive commit. If you keep
everything checked, TSVN does a recursive commit of the parent folder
- that's you should do when you commit folder deletions.
