I'm surprised Subversion allowed "svn rm" to occur on a directory
with local modifications. On my system (Subversion 1.6.0 on Mac OS X
10.4.11) it shows a clear warning. If I have modified a file in the
directory I'm trying to delete:

$ svn rm somedirectory
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: 'somedirectory/existingfile' has local modifications
$

If I have an unversioned file in the directory I'm trying to delete:

$ svn rm somedirectory
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: 'somedirectory/newfile' is not under version control
$

Did you see this message and then use --force?

I also cannot believe that Subversion would send any files to the
Trash can, since that's a GUI concept and the Subversion libraries
don't know about your GUI.

Are you using the svn command line client or something else? (if
something else, what?)
