I had something extremely similar to this the other day. I *think* what
worked finally was:

- get a safe copy of it from the repobrowser
- delete it directly in the repobrowser
- update the wc
- commit as many of the files in the wc as I could without it complaining
- commit the remaining files as a separate revision
- copy the saved file back into the wc
- re-add the saved file
- commit the saved file.
