Absolutely. You should NEVER edit the entries file. You're asking for
all sorts of trouble. You now have a working directory that thinks it
has a complete list of entries, when it doesn't. It's going to tell
this to the server every time it asks for an update, and that will lead
to no end of future problems.

Use svn 1.1. Do a 'svn co -N', then 'svn up foodir' for each value of
foodir, to make specific dirs appear. That should work for you.
