So, if you've removed a file from the repository, and you have a working copy that was checked out before that deletion, then a simple "svn update" in that working copy should delete that file from the working copy. Is that not what's happening? If so, was the file in the working copy modified? Subversion won't delete modified files since that might mean deleting work that didn't exist anywhere else.

That should not be the norm, unless the file was modified. If you see differently, reproduce the problem in a controlled environment and show us a transcript so we can see what's going on.
