See this section on 'mixed revisions' in the book:

http://svnbook.red-bean.com/nightly/en/svn.basic.in-
action.html#svn.basic.in-action.mixedrevs

In short, you can't commit a propchange to a directory whose working
revision isn't at HEAD. You need to run 'svn up'. That's why you're
seeing the 'out of date' message. The repository is telling you
there's a newer version of the directory '/trunk' in the repository,
and therefore you're not allowed to commit a change to it. It's the
same message you'd see if you tried to commit a change to an old
version of a file.
