Option "--force": Misleading error message (II)

Hello everybody,

here is another example where the comment on option "--force" is
misleading. Does the phrase "...will not be attempted..." mean that
--force is successul in some cases???

Once again, the bug report refers to svn 0.34.

Kind regards, Michael

PS: Beside these rather small issues, subversion is a GREAT tool!
