Here's the deal with this bug.

You saw in your commit that both 'c' and 'c/b' were being explicitly
added during the commit. Now, adding 'c' as a copy of 'a' during the
commit also adds to the transaction all of 'a's children (which in
this case include 'b'). Then the commit tries to add 'c/b' and *wham*
the commit fails because 'c/b' already exists (it was copied over with
'c' in the first step of the commit).

This is a bug. Repeat. This is a bug. Gonna give it a quick
look-see right now. :-)
