Won't delete locally modified directory

Please forgive if this description is a bit mangled. I've tried to
reconstruct from memory.

In a branch I create two folders in my WC (under c:\...\common\lib).
Add files to both folders and commit. Both folders now contains versioned
and non-versioned files.

attempt to switch to /trunk
error: Won't delete locally modified directory c:\...\common\lib (this
contains the two new folders)

But I had just before this committed and made sure that "There's nothing for
TSVN to do here!"

I try to swith to trunk again (with commandline svn):
Error: Working copy 'common/lib/DAL' not locked

So I do "cleanup"
Error: 'common/lib/DAL' is not a working copy directory
So this has been switched to /trunk?

I delete 'common/lib/DAL' since it doesn't belong in trunk anyway (yet)

I switch again
Error: Working copy path 'common/lib' does not exist in repository

It does exist, I can see it with repo browser.

I have gotten into a similar situation earlier where my solution was to wipe
the WC and do a
fresh checkout. I don't really enjoy doing that though so any suggestions
would be appreciated.

Server: svn 1.1.1 on Win2k
Client: TSVN 1.1.1 / svn 1.1.1 on WinXP
I use the svn:// protocol.
