Very strange.
But to be clear here: TSVN does not just do an 'svn rm' on selected
files but first moves them to the trash bin (so they can be recovered if
necessary). Only after that, it executes the 'svn rm' command on the
(now missing) file. But Subversion allows an 'svn rm' on an non-existing
file (as long as it was versioned).
I guess the move to the trash bin succeeded, but then the 'svn rm'
somehow failed?
