What you probably wanted to do was :
  svn mkdir http://host/svn/public/grin (if it doesn't exist yet)
  svn cp http://host/svn/private/grin/something \
         http://host/svn/public/grin/something

The command you tried apparently overwrites in some way the /public
directory with the /private/grin/something directory. Except that
apparently it corrupts also the repository (if I understand correctly
what you're saying below.) That's a bug IMO.
