svn: 'bofp' is in the way of the resource actually under version control

Hello Subversion Users. I'm hoping that someone might be able to help
me out with this one.

I'm running:

svn, version 1.1.3 (r12730)
   compiled Jan 15 2005, 12:22:16

On a RH AS 2.1 server. Access is from the same machine, so the client
is at the same version. I have created a small repository and added a
symlink to the repository that points to a directory, however I want to
remove the symlink now. When try svn delete bofp I get:

[svn@gbbksrv1]/servers/http/gbbk/www$ rm dev/bofp
[svn@gbbksrv1]/servers/http/gbbk/www$ svn update
Restored 'dev/bofp'
At revision 2306.
[svn@gbbksrv1]/servers/http/gbbk/www$ svn delete dev/bofp
svn: 'dev/bofp' is in the way of the resource actually under version
[svn@gbbksrv1]/servers/http/gbbk/www$ svn status --verbose dev/bofp
~ 2306 2289 svn dev/bofp

svn update says everything is up to date, and if I remove the item (with
rm, not svn delete) and then update, Subversion repopulates the symlink
just as it was before.

Anyway that I can break this cycle? Did I do something wrong when I
added the link? I just used 'svn add' and it seemed to detect that it
was a symlink.

Thanks for any pointers. I've looked through the 'book' and tried
searching online to no avail.
