Filed as issue #2500 '"svn mkdir URL" gives poor error message when parent
doesn't exist'.

Similar to issue #2295 '"svn mkdir URL" gives poor error message when directory
exists'.

Related to issue #1776 'copy and mkdir should create intermediate directories'
(in that this error would go away if that were done).
