ah, that appears to have fixed it. so, as i read it, if i want to
move a directory in my WC, i can use "svn mv", at which point i have
to *update* the old (obsolete, deleted) directory, and then i can
commit the delete. is that the typical recipe? thanks.

I'm not sure exactly what you did, but it sounds like you committed the add
that resulted from the move, and then attempted to commit the delete.
Something like this:

svn mv subdir1/a subdir2/b
svn ci subdir1/b
svn ci subdir1/a

But the first commit advances HEAD, and so subdir1 is now out of date. But
once you "svn up subdir1", you can go ahead with "svn ci subdir1/a".

Usually in this circumstance, people do "svn ci .", and so they don't get
this hassle.
