It occured to me that this was a directory that existed, was removed and
now exists again.

I mv'ed the directory, then followed the directions in the book for
resurecting deleted files.

That got the directory back, I could then commit, mv the directory back,
and commit again.

One question this leaves me with though is this. svn st notices when you
svn copy --revision=x a file back into the wc, should it not notice when
you simply create the file again?

Thanks anyway for the suggestions.
