svn: Out of date message when trying to create a tag from a working copy

I am using Subversion 1.0.5 and I am having trouble creating a tag from a
particular working copy. My working copy includes a complete update (of all
items and sub-directories) at revision 3795 and also selected updates of
individual files at newer revisions.
For example, I have downloaded an update to a file called Velement.cpp at
revision 3876.
This mix of revisions has been used to create a QA build and now I want to
create a tag in the repository of the current state of my working copy.
When I try using svn copy to create the tag I get the following error:
C:\svn\project>svn copy . svn://svn/project/tags/build_20040902 -m "QA Build
- September 2, 2004"
svn: Commit failed (details follow):
svn: Out of date: '/project/tags/build_20040902/Source/Velement.cpp' in
transaction '370'
I am not quite sure why it thinks Velement cannot be committed to the new
I have searched the mailing list archive and I could not see a similar error
(I apologise if I missed it).
Has anyone had a similar problem? What do you need to do to create a tag of
a working copy where individual items have been updated?
