RE: Resurrecting directories not working?

Sorry, I should have specified:

# svn --version
svn, version 1.0.6 (r10360)
   compiled Jul 19 2004, 21:53:24

(From an RH9 binary RPM. I upgraded from 1.0.3 after getting the same
problem.)

Subject: Resurrecting directories not working?

 
The folder Application/ApExplorer was erroneously been deleted our
repository in revision 115. We're now on revision 117.
 
The SVN book suggests -- at http://svnbook.red-bean.com/svnbook/ch04s04.html
-- that by using the `svn copy` command one can copy back in a deleted
revision for a file or directory.
 
I just can't get it to work. I've copied below the commands that I've used,
but don't understand why I'm repeatedly getting the errors that I do. I've
deleted and rechecked out a number of times, just in case. I've tried
searching the Tigris.org mailing list but it keeps giving me Servlet errors.
("Message not available: 48843", etc.)

No doubt I'm doing something stupid. Any advice would be greatly
appreciated.
