So the problem is that your working copy of 'b' isn't aware that it's
supposed to contain a subdir 'c'. That's what the question mark means

I don't know how this happened... seems very screwed up.

This won't do anything. You're moving a directory that svn doesn't
recognize in the first place, so it's not going to report it as
"missing" when it does an update.

The defective directory is *b*. It's missing an entry for c.

So you need to move (or remove) b, and update from a. All of b should
be re-downloaded from the server during the update.
