Bug: cleanup option

I'm using TSVN v1.4.3 and I have a problem to report.

I have a project tree, and I needed to add a new project to it, so I copied an
existing directory edited the files and then thought about adding the project to
SVN. Of course the .svn directory had been copied as well, so I deleted it.

The tortoise icons for the parent folder changed to a yellow exclamation, so I
thought a cleanup would be in order to sort my working copy out. Unfortunately,
I get the following error:

"Subversion reported an error while doing a cleanup!
<my folder> is not a working copy directory."

I would have thought that a cleanup command would fix such an issue one way or
the other - the new folder has no .svn directory (I checked twice), and I can't
imagine the parent .svn has a reference to the new folder because it hasn't been
added to SVN yet.

In any case, I'd expect cleanup to either ignore the new folder, and restore the
existing folders to their state as if I'd checked them out of SVN. Otherwise,
what's the point of the cleanup command if it doesn't really do any cleaningup?

One thing that is interesting, the new folder has a yellow exclamation icon too,
but when I right click it (I do not get the option to cleanup this directory),
and try to 'add' it, I get the following error:

"directory <c:\new folder\.svn> containing working copy admin area is missing.
Please execute the "Cleanup" command."

There is no cleanup option on the menu. So I cannot cleanup the parent, or the
folder itself. Bah! :)
