There is - you can use the "svn delete" command on a repository URL.

However, your original post does not appear to be complaining about
<blah>\Source\tmp, but rather <blah>\Source\.svn\tmp. This 'tmp' folder
is a hidden folder within SVN's working copy metadata. I doubt that
removing the <blah>\Source\tmp folder from the repository will even

If you do an "svn ls" on the \Source folder in the repository, do you
get a 'tmp' folder there?
