      Description

      After the initial working copy upgrade to 1.8 (from 1.7), attempts to update
      fail while updating externals in folders that are not even checked out (sparse
      checkout).
      
      > C:\Projects\SomeFolder>svn up
      > Updating '.':
      > Removed external 'SubFolder\NotCheckOut\Externals\file.txt'
      > svn: E720003: Can't remove directory
      'D:\Projects\SomeFolder\SubFolder\NotCheckOut\Externals': Das System kann den
      angegebenen Pfad nicht finden.
      
      "Das System kann den angegebenen Pfad nicht finden." = "The system can not find
      the given path."
      Which is correct, the path does not exist, as it is not checked out, as is the
      folder with the externals property on it.
      
      The update is aborted after the error.
      The error is only raised once per external, the subsequent update fails on the
      next external.
      
      Cleanup has no effect.
      
      A workaround is to do multiple updates in a loop until all errors are gone.
