There's nothing wrong with that copy command above. But we can't
tell you what's wrong, because we don't know what commands you issued
beforehand. You may have discovered a magic sequence of commands that
has triggered a bug.

You *do* know about 'svn status', right? It answers all these
questions. It shows you every single local modification you've made,
including ones that affect tree structure. Try 'svn help status',
then run the command, and show us (or tell us) what the state of your
working copy is.

Perhaps there's some local mod within trunk/projects that causes an
error when you try to copy the directory.
