svn: Working copy 'perl-Admintool-DTAUS' is missing or not locked

Hello List.

I've searched the ML and googled for some keywords ('svn Working copy is
missing or not locked') but I don't found a solution for this problem.

I'm using svn (version 1.2.3 (r15833) for server+client) and I've got
some experiences with it. In the past I got only a flat level patching
system like this:

        main trunk
       / | \
      / | \
    dev1 dev2 dev3

So I got the main trunk and added features in the created devX leaves.
Patching was done between the main trunk and the leaves but not between
the leaves.

Some times ago I tried to create some hierarchical patches in my

        main trunk
       / | \
      / | \
    dev1 dev2 dev3

The dev2.1 need to be refreshed with lines from the main trunk so I
patched the main trunk down to the dev2 trunk and everything was fine.
Then I try to patch dev2 down to dev2.1.

Here is the conversion of the abstract hierarchie from above to my real
path names:

main trunk = $SVN/src
dev2 = $SVN/patches/ticket-3735
dev2.1 = $SVN/patches/admintool-newsletter

This are my commands:

# Go into the right directory
% cd ~/all/patches/admintool-newsletter

# Update the working copy
% svn up

# And patch the stuff
% svn -r 1784:1856 merge $SVN/patches/ticket-3735/. .
U CGI-Session-Container/lib/CGI/Session/Container.pm
U CGI-Session-Container/Makefile.PL
Skipped 'perl-Admintool-DTAUS'
svn: Working copy 'perl-Admintool-DTAUS' is missing or not locked

I was a little bit confused about this error message because the
directory should be created within the changes of 1784:1856. So I take
a look at the change log of the specified revisions:

% svn -v -r 1784:1855 log $SVN
r1855 | fuzz | 2005-11-22 12:58:44 +0100 (Di, 22 Nov 2005) | 9 lines
Changed paths:
   A /patches/ticket-3735/perl-Admintool-DTAUS
(from /src/perl-Admintool-DTAUS:1854)

The 'A'dding of the directory was in the specified revision so I don't
know why this error appeared from nowhere. It was the first appearance
of the directory 'perl-Admintool-DTAUS' in the logfile.

What's wrong with my and my subversion? B-)

So long... Fuzz
