I assume you're talking about file externals (as opposed to directory
externals). Then this is a known problem, see:

http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=3351 - can't
remove file externals

I think the only workaround currently is to throw away (part of) your
working copy (after you've removed/edited the svn:externals property
and committed that), and checking it out again.
