Correct. Subversion doesn't remove files when reverting.

I'll try to reproduce this...
It's actually a stack overflow (I think that's the first issue with the
cache which I could easily reproduce!!)

Fixed in revision 8545.

Why do you expect the files to be removed? As you know, those files are
simply added (with history) to version control. Reverting only reverts
the 'add to version control' but does not remove the files. It's not a
'delete' command.

If you like this to change, please ask on the Subversion mailing list.
