svn add fails with directory is already under version control

I'm using Subversion as my repository and Ant as my build/test tool.

My Ant build deletes certain subdirectories (bin, classes, etc.), creates new, empty versions of those subdirectories, then compiles the java code. The resulting binaries end up in the bin subdirectory, the classes in the classes subdirectory, etc.

I add the dirs and files, then commit the changes to Subversion.

I run the build script again, which goes through the same process.

This time, when I attempt to check files in, svn add failes with a message that the directories are already under version control.

This seems like a standard build life-cycle to me. Am I doing something wrong, or misunderstanding how svn works?
