I understand, but despite of this there is IMHO still a problem with
TortoiseSVN client. Have you tried reproduce the procedure described
by me on your system?

1.a Create a new non-versioned folder within your WC out of Windows
explores, eg. using mkdir command, FAR, Total commander, Eclipse
1.b Put some non-versioned file into this new folder

2.a Issue Commit command
2.b You should see someting like this:
      [ ] Folder-Icon Folder-path ....... non-versioned
      [ ] File-Icon File-path ....... non versioned
2.c Select both, folder and file
      [x] Folder-Icon Folder-path ....... non-versioned
      [x] File-Icon File-path ....... non versioned
2.d Press OK button to commit changes

3.a Your TortoiseSVN should show that all files are up-to-date
3.b Consecutive Commit and/or Check for modifications commands
     should report no modifications. no new folders/files,
     no non-versioned folders/files

4.a Use repo browser to verify whether folder&file are in repository
4.b Check-out repository into new location and check, whether
      folder and file are there

5.a If files there are, the my problem is little bit mysterious
     because it is not possible to reproduce the problem
5.b If folder and file are missing, then there is a bug
      - TortoiseSVN should either add non-versioned folder
      first and then send content of files within this folder
      or should disallow this operation at all to force user
      use Add command each time.
      (for non versioned files within folders being in the repository
       this procedure works OK)
