Similar: I svn add'ed a directory tree,
and got some core.3434 files added as well.
(Gotta change my ignore patterns.)

Since I had not checked in,
they weren't yet in the repository.
But various attempts
to do things such as
svn rm core.3434
failed - in this case,
because the parent directory
was not yet checked in.

Eventually I copied /dev/null to core.3434,
and checked that in, so I did not waste space.

Q: what is the proper way to remove
a file that has been accidentally added,
before checking in?
