Same applies for TortoiseSVN 1.4.1, Build 8533 - 32 Bit -dev, 2007/01/22

Further to the above.
Ignoring XFiles1..n issues for the moment.
Selecting and reverting the uncommitted SVN Copied FolderC now in
FolderA simply removes it's.svn folder
It is then necessary to use Explorer to delete the folder and its files.
This action invokes a TSVNCache.exe Application Error
The exception unknown software exception (0xc00000fd) occurred in the
appliaction 0x00416e29.

Back to just SVN copying files XFiles1..XFilesn from FolderB to the
versioned but otherwise empty FolderA.
This works as expected.
However of Revert is conducted on FolderA the files are not removed from
FolderA as I would expect.

I think the following described behavior has been reported before and
could be improved too.
If the list of files selected to be SVN Copied from FolderB to FolderA
accidentally contains an unversioned file, the SVN Copy action is
aborted with a warning message "'Fullpath\FileName' is not under version
control", leaving an incompleted list of copied files in FolderA.

It would probably be more useful to offer the option of SVN Adding any
selected unversioned files.
