send_copyfrom_args was added to Subversion a long time ago but has never
been used by the rest of Subversion because the copyfrom information is
not useful in most cases. Since it is rarely used and not regression
tested it may have bugs. That said, the behaviour you report doesn't
look like a bug. If you ask for copyfrom information to be sent why
would it be a bug to send it? It may not very useful information but if
you ask for it why do you expect Subversion not to send it?
