Great ! I'll be happy to read it :)

Okay, I read what you wrote, but I don't know how to apply it to my case.

State of the tree at r3423:
trunk/
   web/
     src/

State of the tree at r3424:
trunk/
   src/
     web/

(In effect, I did svn mkdir src; srv move web/src src/web; svn commit)

So, when I run "svn ls -r3423 svn://URL/web/src/test-data.ddl", here's
what I guess is happening:

   * SVN translates the command to "svn ls -r3423 X@HEAD" (HEAD is r3424)

   * SVN traces the object backwards to r3423, and notices a copy
(web/src/test-data.ddl@3424 was copied from src/web/test-data.ddl@3423)

   * Then, SVN runs the command (ls) on path src/web/test-data.ddl, in
r3423.

Have I understood things correctly ? If I did, how come the message
says "test-data.ddl doesn't exist in r3424" ?

Thanks for helping a lost soul here :)

Bye !
François
