Don't do this. This will result in a corrupted Working Copy since the folder
should be under version control but is not any more.

A safe way would be to copy it to another place, delete and commit. Then move
the folder back and set ignore.
Rename it and only select the missing item while committing from the parent
folder. Rename it back and set ignore.

HTH, Rainer
