Re: unexpected behaviour (bug?) when moving/copying

Sorry for not quoting anything, I am in a crappy web mail client.

This sounds like a very common FAQ that comes across the list regularly.
When you do the copy command, you have to let the command create the
folder, you cannot have created it already. If you did, then you will get
the folder inside a folder behavior your describe.

The common dev response has always been that the behavior you see is the
exact same behavior you see when using the cp command of the operating
system, at least on Unix. I believe Windows works the same way.

Sorry if I missed some subtlety in your recipe, but reading it, it just
looks like the common case that is asked regularly. I personally remember
being burned by this and asking the question 6 months ago. It is not too
hard to deal with once you are used to it.

I am also on the TSVN list. It didn't occur to me that this was the
problem when the person posted it. Now that we have an inkling that it is,
it makes their basic scenario that they wanted to accomplish seem kind of
difficult to do properly. Perhaps you should encourage that poster to
repost what they wanted to achieve on the users@subversion list and see
what others have done?
