That probably indicates that flowbuilder has a special case to not destroy
"CVS" directories. I'm afraid you will need to contact the makers of
flowbuilder, and explain that the deletion and recreation of directories is
killing your ability to use subversion, and will they please add ".svn"
alongside "CVS" to their list of directories to preserve.
