Try disabling automatic building, doing an update, then deleting the
directory (within Eclipse's resource view), then committing that.
I suspect at the moment, Eclipse is recreating the classes directory and
getting rid of the .svn directories, so that Subclipse doesn't know it's
got anything to delete.

An alternative, do this part from the command line instead, with Eclipse
shut down so it can't interfere, remembering to do an svn delete instead
of just deleting the directory. (Or use svn delete and the url, avoiding
the working copy altogether. You could do that in the Subclipse
repository browser, in fact.)

Works fine for me... yes, it can be a bit of a pain if you get yourself
into a muddle, but it's not *that* hard to get out of (especially with
the command line as a backup) and most of your time shouldn't be spent
in that state anyway.
