That's by design. With the 'nonrecursive' flag you specify that the
update is done with depth "empty". And in 1.6.x the update depth is
'sticky' by default. That means the update depth is kept/stored and
therefore the files are not necessary/wanted anymore.
Version 1.7 has a new command line option /stickydepth to set this
sticky flag explicitly, but in 1.6 the depth is always sticky.
