i tried to do a (url) copy of an existing file
into a not-yet existing /tags/TAG01 folder.

here the receipe: (Dos/Win32, but should adopt easily)

rmdir /s/q Repos
rmdir /s/q Work

set REPOS=file:///X:/SVNSandbox/SVNChecker/Repos

svnadmin create Repos

mkdir Work
cd Work
svn mkdir %repos%/trunk -m "mk trunk"
svn mkdir %repos%/tags -m "mk tags"
svn co %repos%/trunk .
echo fileA >fileA.txt
svn add fileA.txt
svn ci -m "add A file"
## don't svn mkdir %repos%/tags/TAG01 -m "mk TAG01 folder"
svn cp %repos%/trunk/fileA.txt \
    %repos%/tags/TAG01/fileA.txt -m "tagged as TAG01"
## => svn: Out of date: 'tags/TAG01' in transaction '6'

-) a repository operation cannot be 'out of date',
    the error is misleading,
    probably should be 'target directory does not exist'?

-) it would be nice if it worked that way

-) it works if dir "TAG01" is created before but then
    the folder is not at the same revision as the tagged file.

-) happens with 1.0.1 and trunk revision 9267

-) i searched for "Out of date" in the
    issue tracker but found nothing similar.
