I cannot reproduce this. Could you give a complete reproduction recipe
please (that is, a script)? My transcript is below.

-N is deprecated; we use --depth=foo now. And the --set-depth option
does what you want.

The reported 'svn ls' behavior would be a bug, I think; but I cannot
reproduce it with latest trunk Subversion (which is similar to 1.5.2,
though not exactly the same).

The 'update' behavior is as-designed, and you should use --set-depth to
expand ("unfold") the directories.

Here's my repro script:


# The next line is the only line you should need to adjust.



rm -rf repos wc import-me

${SVNADMIN} create repos

echo "### Making a Greek Tree for import..."
mkdir import-me
mkdir import-me/trunk
mkdir import-me/tags
mkdir import-me/branches
mkdir import-me/trunk/A
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/B/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/C/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/D/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/B/E/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/B/F/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/D/G/
mkdir import-me/trunk/A/D/H/
echo "This is the file 'iota'." > import-me/trunk/iota
echo "This is the file 'A/mu'." > import-me/trunk/A/mu
echo "This is the file 'A/B/lambda'." > import-me/trunk/A/B/lambda
echo "This is the file 'A/B/E/alpha'." > import-me/trunk/A/B/E/alpha
echo "This is the file 'A/B/E/beta'." > import-me/trunk/A/B/E/beta
echo "This is the file 'A/D/gamma'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/gamma
echo "This is the file 'A/D/G/pi'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/G/pi
echo "This is the file 'A/D/G/rho'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/G/rho
echo "This is the file 'A/D/G/tau'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/G/tau
echo "This is the file 'A/D/H/chi'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/H/chi
echo "This is the file 'A/D/H/omega'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/H/omega
echo "This is the file 'A/D/H/psi'." > import-me/trunk/A/D/H/psi
echo "### Done."
echo ""
echo "### Importing it..."
(cd import-me; ${SVN} import -q -m "Initial import." ${URL})
echo "### Done."
echo ""

${SVN} co -q -N ${URL}/trunk wc

cd wc
${SVN} ls
cd ..
