Directory move problems

Hi everybody,

we're new to subversion since several weeks, so please be patient, if things
go wrong by our lack of experience with svn. :-)

History and Setup:
We started using subversion with porting our development project from cvs to
svn with cvs2svn.
I then move around some directories to get a structure of two projects in the
same repository like this:

/svnrepository/
                     RoboCupNew/
                                         trunk
                                         branches
                                         tags
                     RoboCupOld/
                                         trunk
                                         branches
                                         tags

Subversion version is 1.0.6 compiled for and used on RedHat9.0 (we used the
.rpms of David Summers).
svnserve is started as: svnserve -d -r /svnrepository/RoboCupNew/
(I already noticed that the trailing / could be a problem)

Yesterday I tried to change the directory layout in the main directory:
svn checkout svn://svnserver/trunk source
cd source
svn move GUI/ gui
svn commit
After I wrote the log message commit starts but aborts with an error:
Path /vn:/svnserver/trunk/GUI does not exist...
Unfortunately I didn't save the exact error message, but I am pretty sure with
the beginning of the path, as I think this was somehow scrambled by svn. I
think it should be svn://svnserver/trunk/GUI...

I tried to work directly on the repository using:
svn move svn://svnserver/trunk/GUI svn://svnserver/trunk/gui
but this didn't work, too.
Finally I changed the svnserve process to:
svnserve -d
And used:
svn move svn://svnserver/svnrepository/RoboCupNew/trunk/GUI
svn://svnserver/svnrepository/RoboCupNew/trunk/gui
and it worked.

What was wrong with the first tries???

Please help!
