You're committing an addition and deletion; after the commit is
successful, the working copy library tries to truly remove the 'test'
directory from the working copy, as you would expect.

On unix, this is never a problem -- the directory is always unlinked.
On win32, the deletion fails if another process has a file-handle open.
Obviously, you've discovered that.

After closing the file in your editor, your working copy *should* be in
an inconsistent state, requiring cleanup. 'svn status' should show that
certain working copy dirs are locked, and 'svn cleanup' should execute
the unfinished journals and complete the unfinished work.

Have you tried that approach? Removing the 'test' dir by hand is
interfering with the working-copy's ability to finish it's own work.
