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

Hello everybody,

it seems like the comments/error messages on option "--force" are not
alway correct. In the example given below, the user is encouraged to use
"--force" but the operation still fails.

Kind regards, Michael


schmitt@linux:~/Docs> svn mkdir Travel
A Travel

schmitt@linux:~/Docs> svn mv Travel Travelling
svn: Attempting restricted operation for modified resource
svn: Use --force to override this restriction
svn: Move will not be attempted unless forced
svn: 'Travel' has local modifications

schmitt@linux:~/Docs> svn mv --force Travel Travelling
svn: Trying to use an unsupported feature
svn: Not allowed to copy or move 'Travel': it is not in the
repository yet; try committing first
