The exclamation points don't mean "missing", but rather "incomplete".
An "incomplete" directory means that the directory isn't confident about
its contents... i.e. it claims to be at working rev N, but might not
have a complete list of entries. It's the thing that allows you to
restart checkouts and updates. If a directory believes itself to be
incomplete, then when you run 'svn up' it will describe *everything* it
has to the server, rather than just tell the server it has a certain
version of a directory.

Anyway, this confusion is my fault. I stupidly overloaded the '!'
symbol to mean *either* missing or incomplete, and forgot to fix it
before 1.0. :-(
