I see what you mean.
I just discovered it myself.

User a committing file c
User b committing file d
User a updating his working copy
User b removing file d
User a committing file e referencing d
Project destroyed.

I know, it's not a big deal for SVN. I know how to fix it.
It's not a bugreport. It's just a thing for consideration.
At the very least, it leading to the moment of frustration.
Here you have working copy that you just committed to repository, and here you
update your working copy and it does not work.

SVN does not notify you that you're likely to run in such situation while
doing commit from outdated BASE.
