I suggest you use the repository browser to remove that folder. Just
select the folder, right-click, choose "Delete".
If it doesn't show up in the repobrowser correctly, try the latest
1.5.0-RC3 build - it should work with that one.
Just FYI: it's not TSVN that can't understand a folder with name '*' -
it's Windows that doesn't allow such a name on its filesystems.
