[TSVN] Deleting directories (physically, then commit)

From: Markus Fischer <markus_at_fischer.name>

Hi,

from the time to time it happens that a directory is brute-force deleted
from the filesystem without doing it over TSVN. E.g. im in \project\ and
  deleted the directory \project\dir1\ completely and then "Commit" in
\project\ I get this message from TSVN:

Error:
Commit failed (details follow)
Entry for 'C:\project\dir1\' has no URL
Try a "Cleanup". If that doesn't work you need to do a fresh checkout

I did ran cleanup but it didn't help.

I also can't do a clean checkout because it is not simply \project\dir1\
but it's big project and this directory is like the third subdirectory
and in the whole three are many still open changes to commit for other,
separate tasks.

When I do "Check for modifications" "dir1" is listed, but the only
command available is "Revert" which doesn't seem to do anything.

I also can't checkout "dir1" into "project" directly, this command is
nowehere available.

How is this issue best handled?

thanks,
- Markus

ps: it would be of help if actual error messages could be copy & pasted
