Yeah, it's a bug.

The one real use case I've heard is for testing something where the end
result of your build can't have .svn directories in it, like a package
building system (I think the debian package build was the example I'd
heard). If there are .svn directories in there, some tool complains
about it, so you export from your working copy to a clean tree and test
it there. That way you can test your changes before committing them.
