The directory is removed in the master repository, but not in the
local branch.  That's a conflict that prevents a clean merge.

It's not a bug, and the above is precisely the way to resolve such
conflicts (of course, you could also use --take-mine, but in this case
that would be wrong).

Bastien, next time you have such non-text conflicts, type

  bzr help conflict-types

and read there (it's a long entry, so redirect to a pager or to an
Emacs buffer).  In particular, this specific conflict is described
under "Deleting parent".
