Tag from previous revision (but was copied) causes bogus tag

In a quick check, I didn't find this issue, but I suspect it may
already be known. Sorry, if it is.

I tried to create a branch from a previous revision, when viewing the
log. However, there is a trick here in that "trunk" had been copied
from one of the branches since the revision I wanted to make the tag
from. Therefore, when the tag was created, it should have been copied
from the location in branches, but instead it was made from "trunk",
which is not where I wanted it to come from. This may be related to
an issue with "peg revision" (if I understand that term correctly).

Going back to the branch and tagging from there solved the problem.

Again, what happened was ... I have a revision from "/branches/???"
that I want to tag. After that time, I had deleted "trunk" and copied
"/branches/???" to "trunk". This was due to the fact that "trunk" had
not been used in such a long time. Afterwards, I wanted to tag an old
revision of what is now "trunk", but was at that time,
"branches/???". The tag came from the "trunk", seemingly at the
correct point in time, but it should have come from "branches/???".

I have the feeling this is just one of those "no-no's", but I wanted
to verify that here. I tried a recent 1.4.x build as well as the
latest 1.5 release candidate. Server is Apache 2.0.x, running SVN

Thanks in advance.
