'svn copy wc URL' and 'svn copy URL URL' won't overwrite things. That's
how we designed things. But 'svn copy URL wc' *should* overwrite
things, as long as they're scheduled for deletion. It's a regression
bug that we can't do that anymore. See issue #1516. I'm annoyed about

It's bit presumptious to claim that it was an svn bug that deleted your
directory... especially since you have no idea how it happened. My
guess is that you're being smacked by the standard NeXTstep interface
builder problem: i.e. it's destroying and re-creating whole directories
without telling you.

Let me get this straight: dumping and re-loading your whole repository
is 'easier' than a single 'svn merge -r53:52' command?

OK, whatever floats your boat. :-)
