That same revision also removes it, but is uses the original name for
the deletion (the bzr revision actually renames the containing
directory).  That's probably what confuses git fast-import.

Here is a test case:

bzr init
mkdir a
bzr add a
touch a/b
bzr add a/b
bzr ci -m a
bzr mv a b
bzr rm b/b
bzr ci -m b
bzr fast-export .

The output contains these lines:

R a/b b/b
D a/b

Changing the second line to D b/b fixes the bug.
