Yes. Use a pre-1.6 server and commit the deletion of a file which has
already been deleted in the repository. If you make no other changes
within the same commit, you will get an empty revision.

This was fixed in 1.6.x as part of the tree conflicts effort.
A 1.6.x server will perform an out-of-dateness check before deleting
an item, and reject the commit if the item is out-of-date (i.e. its
BASE revision is not HEAD).

As long as the above is the only way you can reproduce it,
there's no point in filing a new bug about this.
