Reverse merge removes directory even if it contains files that were added on another commit.

I am wondering if this has ever been reported.
I have a developer that added a directory on one commit and the second developer added files to it on a subsequent commit for a different development effort. When we decided to remove the code the first developer added the reverse merge removed the directory even though it contained files that were committed on a different revision.
Developer A created
Developer B added file-y in Directory1 (revision 135)
Subsequently I had to remove Developer A work in revision 123 from branch and directory1 was removed (also taking with it file-y)
It would be helpful if Subversion could look at the directory to see if removing it would remove files that were not part of it's commit prior to removing the directory.
