Bug: if you delete the .txt file (leaving the .txt,v file) the twiki informs the user the topic does not exist

and when you then create the topic, it adds a new revision, as though the user had purposly removed the previous contents.

Test case

delete TWiki/data/TWiki/*.txt then goto http://you host/view/TWiki/WebHome (get the not found answer), create the topic - see that the revision number is higher than 1.1

shouldn't we realise that the topic has been created, and do a new checkout?

Is this really a bug? The only way for an end user to remove the .txt file is to perform a rename, which moves the history as well. IMO this is actually a feature request surely to handle when a sysadmin goes around breaking things beneath TWiki.

If a sysadmin has accidentally done a rm *.txt or rm * (if they're using an RCS dir approach), the ability to retrieve the previous versions of the topic is a positive benefit rather than a bug.
