Yes. This trips up a lot of people until you get used to it. Your
problem is that the RELEASE_1 folder already existed in the repository. If
it didn't exist, and you let the tag operation create it, then it would
have done what you want.

Just to head off any additional questions, this is a Subversion issue not
Subclipse. We are just issuing the copy command as you showed.

Apparently if you were to do a similar copy command on a Unix file system
you would get similar results and that is why it works the way it does.
