SVN 1.5 - Beta 1 - mkdir behavior

Hi there,

i have observed a little bit odd behavior (in my opinion) of the mkdir
comment in relationship with the --parents option...

I have created a clean new repository and after that i have given the
following on the command line:

svn mkdir --parents \
    $URL/project1/trunk \
    $URL/project1/tags \
    $URL/project1/branches \
    $URL/project2/trunk \
    $URL/project2/tags \
    $URL/project2/branches -m"- First structure"

and got an error message:
svn: File already exists: filesystem '...', transaction '0-0', path

Is this intended behavior ? Or is my understanding not correct...
I had expected that those two intermediate directories (project1 and
project2) would have been created and the structure in the repository as

Can someone enlighten me...
Thanks in advance...

Kind regards
Karl Heinz Marbaise
