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.
Or:
Rename it and only select the missing item while committing from the parent
folder. Rename it back and set ignore.
