Yes, that looks like a bug in svn_io_copy_dir_recursively. The
current code looks like:

      /* Telescope the entryname onto the source dir. */
      src_target = svn_path_join (src, this_entry.name, subpool);
      SVN_ERR (svn_path_cstring_to_utf8 (&src_target_utf8, src_target,
but src is already in UTF-8, thus src_target is inconsistent and the
conversion is invalid. I think the code should be more like:

      SVN_ERR (svn_path_cstring_to_utf8 (&entry_utf8, this_entry.name, ...));
      src_target = svn_path_join (src, entry_utf8, ...));

with something similar to construct dst_target.
