Why is this only possible with the command line client? The TSVN
checkout dialog has a checkbox "only checkout top folders" which does
exactly that.
Or do you mean an update of a non-existing 'somedir'? Ok, yes, that's
not possible with TSVN.

Just delete the folder. That's it.

You don't have to "update" a non-existing directory. A checkout will
work too. If you specify the correct location for the checkout, it
should work as well.

Simply delete the directory.
