disable that behavior. So, if you've removed a file from the repository, and you have a working
copy that was checked out before that deletion, then a simple "svn update" in that working
copy should delete that file from the working copy. Is that not what's happening? If so, was
the file in the working copy modified? Subversion won't delete modified files since that might
mean deleting work that didn't exist anywhere else.
Our experience was that the file remained in the working copy after it 
was deleted from SVN Repo and an update was done in the working directory
