First attempt (which failed):

I have a machine where development was done (fetiche, the initiator)
and one on which I want to push the change (vespucci, the target).

All the development I want to retrieve is in one subdirectory,
something I can check by 'zgrep -e "add(dir|file)"

On the target, vespucci, the subdirectory does not exist. It existed,
but I deleted it and ran a 'darcs remove'.

Both darcs repository are locally up-to-date ("darcs record" finds
nothing to record and says "No changes!").

But I still have the same problem. fetiche pushes, the darcsXVZzpw
file is copied to vespucci and then darcs just run forever on the
target machine.

If I push to a machine where the repository is completely new, it
works. But, in my case, while the repository on vespucci is not new,
I should not see any conflict because changes are in one directory,
which no longer exist on the target.
