Non-recursive checkouts have not been fully worked out.

In this case, what I think is going on is that the entry for "subdir" in
a/.svn/entries does not exist (since you did not request it to be checked
out). The "!" status is used to report that an entry for a file/dir is seen
in foo/.svn/entries but that the corresponding item in foo is not there.

Similarly, "svn update" is driven by the contents of .svn/entries. "svn
checkout" will add items to .svn/entries that were not there before.
