Thanks for the bug recipe, Kevin. I'm able to reproduce this bug
using the latest trunk code too... although my initial attempt to
delete tells me to use --force:

$ svn rm dir
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: 'dir/bar' is not under version control

But then when I use --force, I do indeed the error iff the
unversioned subdir contains a symlink:

$ svn rm dir --force
D dir/foo
D dir
svn: Can't remove 'dir/bar': Directory not empty

Kevin, can you file a new bug?
