Any Proconditions for copy WC -> URL?

I do have problems with a copy WC to URL when creating a tag. Here is the
command and the error message:

> svn copy -m "test of copy command" . svn://serverName/Dev/tags/aLongTagName
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Out of Date : directoryName

I'm executing the command in the top level directory of the working copy.
The directoryName is the name of the directory where I did my last changes.
But before I changed into the top level directory to create the tag, I did
an update and commit of the directory "directoryName". Also the whole working
copy is up to date (according to svn status -u). Moreover I understood from
the documentation that one can make a snapshoot from a WC, meaning the WC
does not need to be up to date at all.

If I perform first a svn update in the top level directory (nothing gets
updated as everything is up to date), the copy works.

My question is: what am I missing? Is there any requirement to fullfill
before making a tag from a WC?
