'svn mv' is [currently] implemented as 'cp' followed by 'rm' but I would think
that if the 'rm' failed that the 'cp' would have been rolled back. However,
without the sequence of user commands, it would be difficult to know what the
user actually did. It would be especially useful to know if the user was trying
to mv in the WC or directly in the repository with a URL.

If you need to restore the directory and try again, see this section in the docs:


If you can get more information about what the user actually did, it would help.
  I'm not sure why the Apache log would show an out-of-date error; normally if
the WC is not up-to-date, there are certain things that will not work right
(like mv I believe ;).
