I always commit "file by file" by selecting the desired file in the
explorer and select TSVN>commit. Now I can give a detailled
description in the log message for this special file.
How can I commit the file delete? I have to select commit on the
current folder, de-select every file and then re-select the file
delete. And even worse: Sometimes, I forget to commit file deletes,
because the files has been deleted by TSVN before!

Other Example, file rename, not file delete:
Try to rename a file, select the renamed file and commit this change
to SVN. This does not work, TSVN will tell you that the original file
is not part of this commit (both original and renamed files must be
commited together)! But I am not able to select the file with the
original filename as this has been deleted by TSVN too. If both files
were still there, I could select both files and then commit them

Best regards,

Isn't that just going to dramatically increase the risk of losing data, if you forget that it's a zombie and make further edits to the file, only to have it abruptly vanish later? And it increases the risk of confusing project/build systems too.
