Hmmm. When I look back over your initial description, it's not
entirely clear to me what happened in your repository. It's time to
take this beyond prose transcripts, it's too hard to follow what's
going on.

Can you post a script that reproduces everything? The script would
create the repository, make the relevant directories, check out a
working copy, run the svn commands, and cause the bug(s) to happen.
It should contain echo statements or comments indicating the wrong
state at each point where a wrong state happens.

Sorry, I know a script is more time for you, but it helps us
*immensely*, as we have so many potential bug reports to get through,
only some of which are actual bugs.
