Can't 'svn delete' a directory symlink!

Hello:

This is using subversion version 1.2.3 (r15833) on Solaris. I have
a symbolic link to a directory as well as the directory under
revision control:

$ ls -l
total 16
...
drwxrwx--- 3 xyz xyz 4096 Mar 7 14:29 41
lrwxrwxrwx 1 xyz xyz 2 Mar 7 14:30 65.0 -> 41
...

When I try to delete the symbolic link:

$ svn delete 65.0 -m "Remove 65.0 symbolic link"

I get the error message from svn:

svn: '65.0' is in the way of the resource actually under version control

Trying to rename it, I get the message 'Move will not be attempted
unless forced' followed by the same "svn: '65.0' is in the way of the
resource actually under version control" message.

Is there any way for me to get out of this???

Thanks
