svn copy bug from working copy

From: Cengiz Alaettinoglu <cengiz_at_packetdesign.com>

The following bug report is with subversion version 1.1.2 at client
running Fedora Core 3 and the server is running 1.1.1 on FreeBSD 4.10,
with an FSFS repository.

Add file foo containing 1 to the repository
  [elf tmp]$ svn mkdir $SVNROOT/bug
  [elf tmp]$ svn co $SVNROOT/bug
  [elf tmp]$ cd bug
  [elf bug]$ echo 1 > foo
  [elf bug]$ svn add foo
  [elf bug]$ svn commit

Check this out to a different directory

  [elf bug]$ cd ..
  [elf tmp]$ svn co $SVNROOT/bug bug-copy2
  [elf tmp]$ cd bug-copy2/
  [elf bug-copy2]$ ls
  foo
  [elf bug-copy2]$ cat foo
  1

Modify the file and commit

  [elf bug-copy2]$ echo 3 > foo
  [elf bug-copy2]$ svn commit

Go to the original copy and modify there also

  [elf bug-copy2]$ cd ../bug
  [elf bug]$ echo 5 > foo

We are not ready to commit these changes to the trunk, make a branch for
them

  [elf bug]$ svn copy . $SVNROOT/bug-branch

Check out the branch

  [elf bug]$ cd ..
  [elf tmp]$ svn co $SVNROOT/bug-branch
  [elf tmp]$ cd bug-branch/
  [elf bug-branch]$ ls
  foo
  [elf bug-branch]$ cat foo
  5

foo on trunk contained 1 and then 3. But foo on the branch contained 1
and
then 5 (never had a version containing 3). But below diff -r 23647 says
otherwise.

  [elf bug-branch]$ svn log foo

  Foo contains 1.

I can speculate that when copying the branch svn made a copy from
the HEAD of trunk instead of from the BASE version of the working
directory.
