strange entry in a dir, cannot be deleted

Hi all,

        I manage a subversion server. The server is Apache 2.0.46+subversion
0.23.0, FreeBSD 4.8.
        Today I happened to find there is a strange entry under a dir. The
URL is:

        I know who made this entry ("%80%ed%f9") (from Apache's access_log),
but he said that he didn't do that. I think who did that is not important,
the problem is that I cannot remove this entry, which seems to be a subdir.

        I tried removing it in windows, using the command line client, this
was what I got:
svn: Filesystem has no item
svn: URL `https://...../gamesales/%80%ed%f9' does not exist

       And I cannot checkout the dir https://..../gamesales/, obviousely
because of that entry under gamesales dir.

        I think it is a bug of subversion (maybe of TortoiseSVN, because
that guy was using it as client). Since if subversion thinks the name is
invalid, there should be no way to create it at the very start.

        Please help me to delete the evil entry. ....

        BTW, I am new to subversion and TortoiseSVN.

Gilbert Fine.
