I don't know anything about RapidSVN, but it sounds like the directory name in the repository
might not be "Directory Name" but might in fact be "Directory%20Name". I don't know how that
would have come to pass if you didn't mean for that to occur, but perhaps RapidSVN does not
properly handle items whose names contain spaces.

And what happens when you enter a commit message, save, and close? Does the commit succeed
or do you get the error that "Directory Name" does not exist? If so, try:

svn delete svn://localhost/SVN_REP/Directory%2520Name

(where "%25" is the percent-encoding for the percent sign).
