That's not the only way 'mca' can be deleted. Remember that renames are
just copies + deletes. Why don't you run 'svn log -v -rHEAD
reposrootURL', and see exactly what changes are attempting to be
merged. The server really is trying to delete the 'mca' directory.

This behavior has been fixed in svn 1.1 (the latest /trunk code). If
the update process tries to delete a file or directory which contains
local modifications, it no longer stops dead in its tracks. Instead, it
just 'unversions' the locally modified object and keeps going. After
the update completes, 'svn status' shows unversioned objects.
