1. Summarise the issue (what were doing, what went wrong?)

I deleted a fairly complicated directory structure; I said `darcs wh`
and got a screenfull of changes, for all the files/directories that were
contained in the top-level directory.

To demonstrate, deleting dir1 in this hierarchy:
├── _darcs
│   ├── ...
└── dir1
    ├── dir2
    │   └── file2
    └── file1

gives the following darcs wh output:

rmfile ./dir1/dir2/file2
rmdir ./dir1/dir2
rmfile ./dir1/file1
rmdir ./dir1

2. What behaviour were you expecting instead?

I want darcs to just tell me that I've deleted the top-level dir, rather
than each individual file/directory that has been deleted.

3. What darcs version are you using? (Try: darcs --exact-version)

2.9.1 (+ 479 patches)

4. What operating system are you running?
Ubuntu x86_64
