Repository Browser hangs when deleting directories from left hand pane

I've been meaning to put together a batch file to demonstrate this issue, but
haven't gotten to it in the past month, so I'd thought it would be better to
just throw it out and see if it can be resolved with the following

 * I'm accessing my repository over HTTPS
 * The issue occurs when deleting directories through the Repository
Browser. This is the only situation that I've known this to occur, but I
should also say that I hardly ever delete files through the Repository
Browser. My group's procedure is to delete branches after reintegration to
the trunk, so that is an operation I perform frequently and therefore I've
encountered this issue many times.

TSVN sometimes hangs when trying to delete a directory. I eventually have to
kill TSVN and "send the error report", and the directory does not get
deleted. However, this only happens sometimes. A factor that seems to
correlate with whether TSVN will hang is whether the directory is deleted
from the left hand pane or right hand pane of Repository Browser.

Suppose I'm deleting `^/branches/mybranch`. If `mybranch` is selected in the
left hand pane and I attempt to perform the delete operation from the left
hand pane, TSVN seems to always hang. However, if `branches` is selected in
the left hand pane and the delete operation is applied to `mybranch` in the
right hand pane, TSVN will not hang.

Here are two screen captures to demonstrate. TSVN WON'T hang when delete is
invoked as shown in [1]. TSVN WILL hang when delete is invoked as shown in

If you are able to readily reproduce, I'll investigate further, but i've
seen the issue at least a dozen times so I'm confident there are some
conditions under which this problem is real.
