You need to create a file that replaces a deleted directory.

The copy without a -r creates a file that replaces the deleted
directory. The copy that fails was not part of the script, I put it
explicitly in the email:

$ svn cp -r3 http://localhost:8888/obj/repo/foo/z.c http://localhost:8888/obj/repo/x1

or in script terms

$SVN mkdir $REPO/foo -m "r1 a directory"
$SVN import Makefile $REPO/z.c -m "r2 a file"
$SVN import Makefile $REPO/foo/z.c -m "r3 another file"
$SVN rm $REPO/foo -m "r4 delete directory"
$SVN cp $REPO/z.c $REPO/foo -m "r5 replace with file"
$SVN cp -r3 $REPO/foo/z.c $REPO/x1 -m "r6 fails over dav"

The problem is that $REPO/foo is now a file in HEAD. I have no idea
why svn_ra_check_path for r3 of $REPO/foo/z.c should look at HEAD,
even if there is a path that matches the request there is no guarantee
that the HEAD path as any relation to that in r3. The only thing that
can be guaranteed to match is the repository root.
