undo commit of added "New Folder"?

Hi all out there!

A user here has added and committed a couple of empty "New
Folder" instances (maybe instead of deleting the repository; with
SVN 1.0.0 it is still an off and on in getting him virtual memory
errors, but that's nothing I care a/o ask anymore about, if they kill
SVN one fine day someone else should figure out another
versioning solution for our needs).

Now I try to get these folders gone. Though in this special case it
would perhaps be easiest to simply delete all the "New Folder"s I
understand that generally this should be done with a reverse merge
operation. But while trying to learn something new I get errors:

C:\>svn merge -r 317:316
"http://192.168.0.3/svn/repos1/trunk/internet/Ridinger/New Folder" d
:\internet\ridinger --dry-run
svn: URL 'http://192.168.0.3/svn/repos1/trunk/internet/Ridinger/New
Folder' is not properly URI-encoded

C:\>svn merge -r 317:316 "d:\internet\ridinger\New Folder"
d:\internet\ridinger --dry-run
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos1/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: The REPORT request returned invalid XML in the response:
XML parse error at line 1: no element found
(/svn/repos1/!svn/vcc/default)

C:\>svn merge --dry-run -r 317:316
http://dim4300/svn/repos1/trunk/internet/Ridinger/New%20Folder
d:\internet\ridinger
svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/repos1/!svn/vcc/default'
svn: The REPORT request returned invalid XML in the response:
XML parse error at line 1: no element found
(/svn/repos1/!svn/vcc/default)

C:\>svn merge --dry-run -r 317:316
d:\internet\ridinger\New%20Folder d:\internet\ridinger
svn: 'D:/Internet/Ridinger/New%20Folder' has no URL

C:\>

I understand neither one. Path are checked twice.

Running SVN 1.0.0 on W2K SP2 on both client and server.
