mistake: mixed unix cp and svn move

Hi !
I recently did the following:

cp -R grh grh_try (grh was a svn working copy of a directory)

This was meant to be a throw away test not to be versioned. But the test
worked very well and I continued working on it. Then came the MISTAKE: I
forgot that I used cp instead of svn copy to create grh_try and did:

svn add grh/dm50 (a subdirectory)
svn delete grh
svn move grh_try grh

This gave some errors wich I did neither understood nor remember. Did:

svn --force move grh_try grh

This seemed to work first. But later I discovered that the dm50
subdirectory in grh was not in the repository, and a "svn st" said
it was not under version control. On the other hand "svn add dm50" said
it was already under version control, and did nothing.

I now fear that my repository could have become somehow corrupted by
that mistake. So my question:

When I check out a new working copy and add this dm50 directory again,
is everything in a consistent state afterwards or do I have to expect
more trouble with this repository ?

Best regards,
Wolfgang Kastaun.
