Removing a subdirectory manually like this is just going to make
Subversion think it's unexpectedly missing, yeah. We haven't
implemented a command to prune sparse directories yet, on purpose.
See

...which suggests some workarounds.

[By the way, your question probably should have gone to users@. No
big deal, just pointing it out for next time.]
