svn failed to add directory

Hello list,

Today when trying to commit some changes in a wc, one of the developer
here received the following error message:
Error: Failed to add directory '<directory A>': object of the same name
is already scheduled for addition

Now I have 2 questions:

- Does someone have a clue about how it did happened (the developer is
clueless...) ?
The only think I saw is the case-sensitive/insensitive situation for wc
under windows. I have already setup the check-case-sensitive.pl hook
script for the future.

- What can I do to recover the situation. I know I could delete
everything under <directory A>'s parent and do a svn co of the directory
but ideally, I do not want to do that because there are a lot of file
under the parent directory of <directory A> and the developer has
several files updated that he do not want to commit immediately. Is
there any other way to recover. I've already performed a revert on the
directory which lead me to run a cleanup, but an update or a commit
still returns the same error message.

Thank you in advance for your help,
