The error is thrown by the svn library. TSVN just adds some helpful text
to the error message to tell you why this happens.

You're trying to commit 'c' but not 'c\kappa.doc'. So the commit must be
non-recursive (a recursive commit of 'c' would include its children,
including 'c:\kappa.doc'). And the svn library doesn't allow
non-recursive commits of directory deletions of dirs with child nodes.
