What is the root of the working copy?


If the former, then TSVN would offer to (add and) commit the copy, as
that would be inside the your working copy too.

The .svn folder is in the root of a working copy.

Working copies should never be nested (ok, there are svn:externals,
but that is another story 8-).

If you delete the .svn folder from the working copy, it no longer can
be used as a working copy. It's a plain file system folder then.

What's your TSVN version by the way?
