It's just a tempfile holding the commit message that you entered in
the editor (the editor has to save it somewhere so that SVN can pick
it up). If your commit was successful, it's deleted because it's no
longer needed. If you specify the commit message on the command line
with -m "this is my commit message" I'm not sure it's created at all.
