When I try the current trunk build the copy fails for both files and
directories. The svnmucc test suite is rather small and doesn't test
this behaviour so it may have been different in the past, but I'd be
surprised if it has changed.

I prefer the current error; I think it's better than replacing the
history of something that exists.
