svn copy from not up-to-date local copy

Hi all.

I am experimenting a problem.

I attach a script that creates a new repo and shows it.

In a few words, referring to the exmpale attached

the revision #3 creates a new fil text2.txt in the trunk.

then, a svn cp is made from the local copy, that is at revision #2
(but having an inner object at #3) and revision #4 is created in the
branch 1.0

When I try to reconstruct the history from the branch, the revision #3
is missing!!!

This is annoying because the revision #4 contains, correctly, the file
commited in revision #3.

Obviously, the problem does not rise if I branch from a completely
up-to-date local copy.

Then, maybe, it should be advisable
- or to forbid cp (of folders?) if these are not up-to-date
- or to make svn find that inner objects DO HAVE a revision number
between that of the parent folder and the one of the copy (i.e. #3)

Am I wrong? Should I post a bug?

Thank you for your attention.
