This is a real problem, as I try to find out programmatically, whether
my workarea changed or not (with respect to the latest tag). The
simplest way is to compare the commit versions of the file with the
repository version of the tag. The file deletion is the only case
where this fails. Of course I can come up with a workaround, but the
more I investigated this, the more it seemed as a bug in status, so I
thought it would be a worthwhile contribution to report it - yet I
decided to run the idea past this list first before creating a bug
report.

As said before, it does not keep me from using SVN, I thought
discussing my observation may be the first step to solving it.

Then the file has its number changed, and that is fully fine and sufficient.
