Which is the behavior pretty much everyone expects. If you select a
directory, it's assumed that you intended to operate on that
particular directory.

Sure there is. It's pretty clear which directory you're working on.

This makes no sense to me. What's "corrupted" and how? It's only your
working copy and nothing will be replaced that you don't ask for.

How is your data lost?

So you want TSVN to recursively walk UP the directory tree? This is
potentially a very expensive operation, and can cause some odd
behavior if you've got externals mixed in there as well.

What you're describing here is asking TSVN to make a very large change
in its behavior due to your own carelessness. Slow down and be more
careful about what you're doing. You're given plenty of opportunities
to review what's being committed before it happens.
