altered mbox files not recognized

I'm having the strange problem that subversion does not want to commit a
new revision when I remove a mail from an mbox file in mutt. Observe:

08:11 viktor@bart:~/Mail $ rm Inbox
08:11 viktor@bart:~/Mail $ svn up Inbox
# <remove a mail in Inbox>
08:11 viktor@bart:~/Mail $ svn diff Inbox
08:12 viktor@bart:~/Mail $ diff Inbox .svn/text-base/Inbox.svn-base | head

08:12 viktor@bart:~/Mail $ ls -l Inbox .svn/text-base/Inbox.svn-base
-r--r--r-- 1 viktor viktor 74285 2004-03-18 08:02 .svn/text-base/Inbox.svn-base
-rw-r--r-- 1 viktor viktor 71606 2004-03-18 08:11 Inbox

subversion only notices changes to the file when I add content to it in
mutt. However, when I touch the file subversion does notice it.

So the problem is how mutt handles the mbox file when it deletes the
mail, but what exactly is the problem?

Links are appreciated.
