I don't believe so. Just today I was working on a file. I wanted to 
commit a separate change on the same file, so I "shelved" it: rename it 
(using the mv command) and run svn update to get the original copy. I 
have used this method many, many times in the past and it has always worked.

This time, however, Subversion said that everything was up-to-date. I 
was expecting the usual "Restore" message, but it didn't happen. When I 
ran svn st I saw that the file was marked as deleted.
