Bert, I think you misunderstood what this warning was about.

In my testing, a copied tree is still coped recursively on the server
side with a --depth=empty commit. The warning is there to avoid the
misunderstanding that only the parent node of the copied tree will show
up in the repository with its children pruned from the copy.
However a copy is always made with depth=infinity.

You've fixed a different problem, where *additional* changes made within
the copied tree remain in the working copy. But that's not what the
warning is trying to address.

I think this change should be reverted.
