Restore of directory from repository does not remove local, unversioned file

From: Langel, Frank <flangel_at_caxton.com>

1. We are using svn 1.4 and checked in a directory ./test1 using
    svn copy <path> <path>/tags/1.0/
    to tag this directory
2. On the working copy, I am now adding a file ./test1/notwanted.txt to
the directory
3. I am now trying to revert back the directory to it's previous state,
i.e. without the notwanted.txt file in the ./test1/ directory
I tried
- svn update ./td1
- svn checkout <path>/tags/1.0/
- svn cp <path>/tags/1.0/test1 ./test1
without luck. Any idea?
Why doesn't SVN remove the unversioned notwanted.txt file ?
Thanks a lot
