To remove folder user only need write access to the folders and all
it's children

It was bug before Subversion 1.7.9. The problem was that client tried
to read some information from repository root when performing remove
folder. See SVN-4332 for more details [1]

[1] https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/SVN-4332

But according to provided authz file 'alice' has read access to
repository root, so it may be different issue. Anyway, your authz file
allows 'alice' to remove /tags.
