Thanks, you're right. Splitting up the commit in first commiting
everything _but_ the deletion and then only the deletion solved the
problem. Indeed i added something to svn:ignore.

I'll pay attention to this next time. But as a naive user I'd say this
should be handled by Subclipse. I understand that it is due to
limitations in the svn-API, but nevertheless it is an annoyance for the
user. Is this a bug, or should I file one?
