svncopy adds extra level of directory hierarchy

Dear All,

Using this command:

        svncopy -t http://svn.example.com/myproject/trunk \
        http://svn.example.com/myproject/tags/1.1.8

I had hoped to find that tags/1.1.8 would contain a copy of the project,
but instead it contains a directory called "trunk", which in turn
contains a copy of the project.

I had expected to get the usual behaviour of the cp command, i.e.

- If the destination directory exists, a new directory is created inside
it with the name of the leaf of the source directory.

- If the destination directory does not exist, it is created and the
contents of the source directory are copied into it.

Is this a bug or a feature? (I don't know if this is unique to svncopy
or whether "svn cp" has the same behaviour.) Can anyone suggest a
workaround?

Cheers,

--Phil.
