Your recipe is unclear to me; did developer B commit the deletion
before developer A tried to commit the edits? That's what I'm guessing.

If so, when developer A runs 'svn up', the locally edited file won't be
deleted; it just becomes unversioned. Temporarily move the unversioned
file aside. Ressurrect the original file (see chapter 4), then copy the
unversioned file back on top of the resurrected file, so it looks like
you made the new edits. Then commit.
