Directories hold administrative data. Just removing them breaks your
working copy. Don't do that. you can do 2 things:

1) Don't create the directories in the repository in the first place.
2) Commit the symlinks to the repository in a different location and
switch the directories to those locations.

Bye,

Erik.
