A warning? And then the moving still goes on?
Looking at the code, I can't find anything which would give you that
If the move fails (Subversion doesn't show warnings but only returns
with an error baton which TSVN then shows), an error message is shown
and then the function exits.

The moved dir (still can't see how you got there) is from another
location, therefore you now have a so called 'nested layout'. Maybe the
wording of the warning isn't clear here ('nested layout' instead of
'external'), but the result is actually the same.

Try the same with the CL client, using
if it works, then you know where to report that ;)
