Problems with file externals

My shell session went like this...

> % rd/s/q commit-access-templates
>
> % svn up -q
>
> % cd commit-access-templates
>
> % svn ps svn:externals "^/trunk/README myreadme" .
> property 'svn:externals' set on '.'
>
> % svn up
>
> Fetching external item into 'myreadme'
> E myreadme
> C .
> Updated external to revision 33544.

Huh? 'svn help up' says that 'E' means 'Existed'. And it certainly
didn't exist. I suggest to use 'X' for new externals.

And why does it report a conflict on '.'?

> Updated to revision 33544.
>
> % svn st
> M .
> X myreadme

Okay, it's here. Now let's remove it, the same way it was pulled in:

> % svn pd svn:externals .
> property 'svn:externals' deleted from '.'.
>
> % svn up
> At revision 33544.

It should be gone now. But it isn't:

> % svn st
> X myreadme
>
> % ls myreadme
> myreadme
>

Let's try to remove it anyway:

> % del myreadme
>
> % svn st
> ! X myreadme
>
> % svn revert -R . myreadme
> Reverted 'myreadme'
>
> % svn st
> X myreadme
>

How do I get rid of it?
