Out of date error with branches

Hi folks.

I'm seeing the following error message when trying to create a branch:

svn: Out of date: 'branches/6.1' in transaction '4848-1'

Here's what I did:

matthew_at_server$ svn cp svn+ssh://server/LFS/trunk/BOOK
svn+ssh://server/LFS/branches/6.1/ -m "Creating a 6.1 release branch"

Committed revision 4847.

This wasn't quite correct as our build scripts wanted the stuff in
LFS/branches/6.1/BOOK. So I deleted the branch:

matthew_at_server$ svn rm svn+ssh://server/LFS/branches/6.1 -m "Remove
incorrectly created branch"

Committed revision 4848.

Now I'm trying to recreate the branch, but correctly this time:

matthew_at_server$ svn cp svn+ssh://server/LFS/trunk/BOOK
svn+ssh://server/LFS/branches/6.1/BOOK -m "Creating a 6.1 release branch"

and get:

svn: Out of date: 'branches/6.1' in transaction '4848-1'

So, how do I fix things up? Just reverse merge r4847 and 'svn mv' stuff
to the BOOK/ subdirectory? I'd also like to know quite how myself
and/or subversion have got confused about this seemingly simple recipe :)
