It works like Unix copy.

If A and B are both directories,

If B already exists,
    then 'svn cp A B' creates B/A
If B doesn't exist,
    then 'svn cp A B' creates B

So the command you want to run is exactly correct:

svn cp -r 1047 url://trunk url://maintenance/r1.0 -m "Comment"

The problem is that r1.0 already existed, so you ended up with the first
case, rather than the second case. Instead, allow the copy command to
*create* the r1.0 directory.
