commit of out-of-date WC with mod'd dir props fails - why?

(I check the issues, and #561 seems sort of the opposite of this,
but definitely different.)

I'm keeping some web pages under SVN. I've a tree like this:

        /repository ____ hiking _____ wornersattel ____ images
                    \ \____ wallberg ________ images
                      \__ software __...

I check out 'wornersattel' and leave it to get older.

Meanwhile I check out 'software' into a totally separate WC directory,
and make some modifications and commit them.

Then I go back to 'wornersattel' and make some edits and some
'svn:ignore' property changes and then commit them. I get this:

svn_error: #21047 : <Working copy is not up-to-date>
  Commit failed (details follow):

svn_error: #21047 : <Working copy is not up-to-date>
  Cannot commit propchanges for directory '/amd/dione/diskb/home/alexis/doc/html/alexis-hp/UNSTABLE/hiking/wornersattel/images'

Yes, it is right; the WC is *not* up to date, but it is not up to
date in the same way that any simple edit in a sibling directory
would create out-of-dated-ness, but in *that* situation, a commit is
still possible.

I guess there is some logic to this, but I cannot see it. Could
someone explain please? Thanks.
