A couple of questions:
- Which version of SVN client? If not the latest 1.7.x release, can
you try to reproduce with the latest one?
- Does it also reproduce if you insert a 'svn update parent-dir'
between steps 3 and 4? What about an 'svn update root-of-workingcopy'?

(the last questions are not meant to challenge whether or not this is
a bug, but to get a bit more insight into what might be happening)
