That is the problem. Subversion will not create the subdirectories for
you. You need to create the tag/client directory first. But (and it's a
bug BUT) do not create the 2006-09-20_0.1 directory first or you will
end up with a tag in client/2006-09-20_0.1/2006-09-20_0.1

I think that is just subversion giving a misleading error message, and
TSVN trying to give a more helpful interpretation which turns out to be
completely wrong as the original error code was not specific enough.
