Ok, please think about what you're asking Subversion to do here:
* update the root folder
* the root folder contains another folder (let's call it dir1), which
you checked out from a different location
* the root folder also contains the same folder (which you deleted and
replaced it with your own dir1 folder).
* Subversion tries to update the root folder by updating every file and
folder, and also by recreating any 'missing' folders.
* Subversion tries to recreate the original dir1 folder, but it can't
because there's already a dir1 folder which is versioned but pointing to
somewhere else.

It would be a serious bug if you wouldn't get an error message here.
