No it doesn't trigger this behaviour. This gives a delete-delete tree
conflict, as expected.

But watch this:

C:\svntest>svnadmin create r

C:\svntest>svn co -q file:///c:/svntest/r wc

C:\svntest>cd wc

C:\svntest\wc>touch iota

C:\svntest\wc>svn add -q iota

C:\svntest\wc>svn ci -q -m r1

C:\svntest\wc>svn up -q

C:\svntest\wc>svn mv iota kappa
A kappa
D iota

C:\svntest\wc>svn st
D iota
> moved to kappa
A + kappa
> moved from iota

C:\svntest\wc>svn up --set-depth empty
D iota
Updating '.':
Updated to revision 1.

C:\svntest\wc>svn st
A + kappa

Oops. Delete information is lost, and with it also the move information.

I don't think this should raise a tree conflict (just like when iota
is 'M', and you execute 'svn up --set-depth empty', the modified iota
is just left there as a part of the sparse tree -- no delete-edit
conflict is raised). So I think it should just leave the 'D's (and
move information) there. The "emptying" seems to be optional, IIUC the
intention is that anything that's modified in some way should be left
alone (which is cool when sparsifying).

The above scenario looks like a bug, no?
