That will be it.

"delete" means "delete this at the next commit".

"deleted" means "commit has deleted this" or "update has removed this".

I don't think it's valid for a node to have both set.

The delete/deleted combination is not supposed to occur, it's a 1.6 bug
that it let you get into that state.

You may be able to upgrade the rest of the working copy by editing the
.svn/entries file that has the delete/deleted entry. Remove the delete
but make sure to leave the empty line.

$ svnadmin create repo
$ svn mkdir -mm file://`pwd`/repo/A
$ svn1.6 co file://`pwd`/repo wc
$ svn1.6 up -r0 wc/A
$ edit wc/.svn/entries # add delete at line 34
$ svn1.7 upgrade wc
svn: E235000: In file '../src-1.7/subversion/libsvn_wc/entries.c' line 126: assertion failed (entry->schedule == svn_wc_schedule_add || entry->schedule == svn_wc_schedule_normal)

It appears that 1.6 ignores the delete and gives deleted precedence:

$ svn1.6 st wc
$ svn1.6 info wc/A
wc/A: (Not a versioned resource)
svn: A problem occurred; see other errors for details

I suppose 1.7 could do the same but upgrading corrupt working copies is
not really practical because we don't know what else is broken.
