Your expectation is wrong ;)

When Subversion reverts an add, it doesn't know that the added files
have not been modified, and it is always very careful not to lose user
data. So the added files becone unversioned, but are not deleted.

C should be showing unmodified. Try refreshing the view. If that
doesn't fix it, use Check for Modifications to see what modifications
subversion thinks you have.
