Here's what I'd do:

* get a new working copy by running "svn co" again.

* move all the files from the old, hosed working copy into the new
  working copy (excluding, of course, the files under .svn)

* check in the new working copy

* rm -rf the old one

* resolve to never again muck with stuff in .svn!
