right-click on the added folder, choose "undo add".
In the dialog that shows you the added dir you right-clicked on *and*
all the added files within that dialog, check all the added items.
Then click OK and it works.
If you only have the added folder checked, you'll get an error
explaining why it fails:
"Can't revert 'X' without reverting children". That means you can not
undo an added folder without also undoing the add of its child
files/folders. So just check all added items in that dialog and you're fine.
