the Node instance has been discarded through the Item.remove() call.
calling refresh currently doesn't resurrect previously discarded Item instances.

i am not sure whether that's a bug according to the spec, i'll have to check
the spec.

anyway, retrieving a fresh Node instance should solve your problem, e.g.

            String s = target.getPath();
            try {
            } catch (ReferentialIntegrityException rie) {
            target = (Node) session.getItem(s);

BTW: if you think that the current behaviour is actually a bug please feel free
to file a jira issue.

happy easter!
