Well, I think you may not be in a state as serious as you think. From what
you describe, I think you suffer from what is described in the Subversion Book
section "Limitations of mixed revisions"
(http://svnbook.red-bean.com/book/book.html#svn-ch-2-sect-3.4): you cannot commit directory structure changes to
directories which are not the HEAD revision.
