Fixed in revision 3162.

"Save as..." overwrites the file if it exists or creates a new,
unversioned one.
"Copy to working copy" does the same, but it keeps the file history.
That means if you copy the file to a new location in your working copy,
it becomes versioned and in the log of that file you'll see 'copied from
/trunk/file1 : revision XXX'. The same applies if you overwrite an
existing versioned file - the log then shows you a 'copied from' there too.
