Misleading error message on remote copy and missing target

Hi !

I'm doing some server-side renames, and the following error message
tripped me:

$ svn cp file:///svn/temp-repos/vendor/jakarta-jstl/current
file:///svn/temp-repos/vendor/apache/jakarta/taglibs/jstl/trunk -r3015
svn: Out of date: '/vendor/apache/jakarta/taglibs' in transaction '3024-1'
svn: Your commit message was left in a temporary file:
svn: 'svn-commit.tmp'

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.1.1 (r11581)
    compiled Oct 23 2004, 14:47:47

After a while, I realized what my problem was: $REPOS/jakata/taglibs
did not exist in HEAD, so Subversion couldn't copy into it. Here's a
repro recipe:

rd /s/q repos wc
svn --version
svnadmin create repos
svn mkdir -m "" file:///repos/path
svn copy -m "" file:///repos/path file:///repos/bad/path

The message should instead say something like "Path doesn't exist in
revision X: /bad".

Thanks !
