Yeah, I understand that in concept, just not why it applies here. Here's the
full rundown on the steps I took:

* Originally the /folder1/sub1/subsub1 folder was under source control. I
realized this was a problem and read about the "ignore" attribute,
that the attribute could be applied to any "unversioned" item.
* Since it was already versioned and had nothing valuable in it, I used
to delete it.
* I then committed the delete to the repository.
* I then made a trivial change to one of the other files and committed
it, to be
sure that the system had "digested" the change and could go on.
* I then used Explorer to create the folder again.
* I then use Tortoise to "Add to Ignore list -> subsub1".
* Then commit, and get the error I reported above.

I should add that I am the only user here; version control is for me for
mutliple locations, branches, tags, rollbacks, etc. Someone else could not
have committed to the repository in the meantime.

Since the only change was made to my working copy, it doesn't make sense to me
that I would have to do an update first. But since it makes sense to you I
must be missing something...

Thanks in advance for the clarification.
