In the 1.x version only file resources are managed, directories are
not. So if a directory happens to be empty it will be deleted
(comparable to CVS).

In the upcoming 2.0 version (expect a first beta to be out soon)
directories are also handled programmatically. Thus the issue you
describe should disappear in 2.0. You can have instant access to the
2.0 snapshot from SVN even now. Have a look at the site how to do
