I replied to your other email. Yes, this was a bug and I was using svn
1.1.3 when I tested this. I have not tried this on svn 1.2 (where it
might be fixed).

However, doing an "svn update" before I did the copy did solve the
problem for me. It appears that Subversion doesn't register that a
working directory is at a newer version once a commit is done (as seen
via the "svn info" command). That's why when you simply refer to the
directory as ".", it copied the earlier version of the directory.

I'll try this on Subversion 1.2 to see if I still run into this issue.
