I don't know what the current behavior of 'svn export $url ../this-dir' is. I *do* know that a one-argument export uses the cwd as the export target, and explicitly supplying the cwd should behave the same as implicitly supplying one via the one-argument mechanism.

Additionally, poking around the export code has demonstrated a number of scenarios where it falls flat on its face. *sigh*
