It does for me.

svn update should do that.

I would guess you did more than just "rm -f subdir", but it's hard to
guess exactly what. Did you make any recursive changes that might have
affected the .svn directory in the parent?

If your .svn directory is messed up, the best solution is to check out a
new working copy.
