Sorry, I didn't mean to sound like I was yelling before. :-)

It's a common misconception: I don't think everyone realizes that you
have a mixed-revision working copy after *every* commit. Only 'svn up'
will bring your working copy to a single working revision.

The other thing to clarify here is that 'svn cp wc URL' will build a
transaction-tree on the server that is an *exact* reflection of the
mixed revisions in your working copy. So before you run such a command,
run 'svn status -v wc' to see exactly what you're copying to the server.
