Not at all. The files actually were deleted. That's also what 'svn delete'
is doing: scheduling a file for deletion in the repository, but already
delete it in the working copy. (And this behaviour of svn delete is
fully ok and reasonable.)

Note: That was not I was talking about! Locally-modified files are handled
carefully and in the same way as 'update' does. The point is, that the
file is not 'locally modified', but the modification was already comitted
to trunk. In that case, the file is deleted silently.
