That is just how the Subversion copy command has always worked. The
explanation I have seen in the past from the developers is that it is
consistent with how the Unix cp command works. Basically, to get it to work
the way you want, you need to let the copy command create the <tag> folder.
If that folder already exists, you get the behavior you have seen. This
comes up pretty regularly on the Subversion users@ mailing list.
