You can create a example to see the problem:

| a.txt
| | b.txt
| \---.svn

1. Create a local repository for this test.
2. Create the directories and files as shown above.
3. Import everything to the repository.
4. Delete the .svn in TEST\a\.svn
5. Now you have my situation.

Don't say this to me ... say this to the development tool. ;-)

It is not the normal use case, that is right. But this situation can happen all the time and shall be healable with tortoisesvn all the time.
