Error copying repo file over deleted WC dir: no write-lock in parent

Can I have a second pair of eyes on this please? When copy_tests.py 94
deletes a WC directory 'A/B' and tries to copy the repos file 'iota' to
WC path 'A/B', it the svn_wc_add_repos_file4() call fails with:

  .../libsvn_client/copy.c:1570: (apr_err=155005)
  .../libsvn_wc/update_editor.c:5572: (apr_err=155005)
  .../libsvn_wc/lock.c:1468: (apr_err=155005)
  svn: No write-lock in '.../copy_tests-94/A'

I don't understand why svn_wc_add_repos_file4() requires this parent to
be locked, while seven other code paths succeed:

  WC-to-WC copies: (file/dir) over (file/dir)
  repos-to-WC copy: file over file
  repos-to-WC copy: dir over dir
  repos-to-WC copy: dir over file

The following patch fixes it, but I'm not satisfied it's the correct

Fix a problem in copying a repository file over a deleted WC directory.

* subversion/libsvn_client/copy.c
  (repos_to_wc_copy): Get a write lock on the target path's anchor, not just
    on the target path itself.

* subversion/tests/cmdline/copy_tests.py
  (test_list): Remove 'XFail' from copy_repos_over_deleted_other_kind.
