The directory it is choking on has been added and deleted to the
repository and the revision of the parent directory is at a revision
prior to when the directory was added.

According to the docs for this revision this should work:


"In the course of your work, you may decide that you need to create a
working copy that is designed to have specific features and bug fixes.
You can accomplish this by selectively backdating files or directories
to particular revisions (using svn update -r liberally)"

Which is what I have done. So if this isn't working I would say it is a
bug, but I understand the most likely suggestion is to upgrade.

Thank you.
