Yup, this is a bug. I've got a more compact reproduction recipe,
based on yours, and I've filed this as


Here's the recipe:

   rm -rf repos svntest
   ${SVNADMIN} create repos
   mkdir svntest
   ${SVN} import svntest ${URL}/svntest -m "test"
   rm -rf svntest
   ${SVN} co ${URL}/svntest
   cd svntest
   mkdir a
   mkdir a/b
   ${SVN} add a
   ${SVN} commit -m "test"
   # Even if you insert 'svn up' here, the following move command still
   # results in this error:
   # subversion/libsvn_wc/lock.c:677: (apr_err=155005)
   # svn: Working copy 'b/b' is missing or not locked
   ${SVN} move a b

Thanks for the report! We'll fix it as soon as we can; obviously, if
you have time/ability to write a patch for it, that would be great.
