WC entries with copyfrom URL/rev but not copied?

I notice that I've got some entries in my newly-upgraded 1.4 WC's that
have non-blank ->copyfrom_url and ->copyfrom_rev values, but also have
->copied set to FALSE.

What does that mean? We seem to use ->copied and the copyfrom members
interchangably - should one imply the other?

If it's any help, I think I may have switched the directory between
a local trunk and a tag (which would have been copied-from a branch)
and back again. One of the child directories now has the branch as
copyfrom, even though it's no longer switched to the tag. There are no
local modifications in the wc.

Would it be appropriate to add some code to read_entry() to force
copyfrom_* to empty if copied is FALSE? (and error if copied is TRUE
and copyfrom_* is empty?)
