The "delzip" file next to it didn't get a new timestamp in the 
repository as the svn client noticed that its content had not changed. 
When delzip is newer than the related zip archive it is recreated from 
scratch. If it is older it is updated and since the old build contained 
a reference to deleted file and that caused the trouble.

I now forced a new timestamp for that delzip by changing and committing 
it. I don't like that delzip magic and we should get rid of it: When any 
of the content files in a zip archive gets changed then rezipping the 
whole archive is not too expensive on a GHz-CPU, so doing just that and 
removing the delzip files will eliminate a source of confusion.

That will work too as the problematic zip file will be fully rebuilt.
