It's a bug in a version of Subversion that's far too old. You really
should upgrade if you can; 1.7.x and 1.8.x are no longer supported.

It works with 1.11:

$ svnadmin create repo
$ svn co file://$(pwd)/repo wc
Checked out revision 0.
$ ln -s foo wc/bar
$ svn add wc/bar
A wc/bar
$ svn ci -mm wc
Adding wc/bar
Transmitting file data .done
Committing transaction...
Committed revision 1.
$ svn rm --keep-local wc/bar
D wc/bar
$ svn ci -mm wc
Deleting wc/bar
Committing transaction...
Committed revision 2.
$ svn st wc
? wc/bar
$ ls -l wc
total 0
lrwxr-xr-x 1 brane staff 3 6 Nov 15:36 bar -> foo
