Subversion would attempt to perform every step that was done on the
branch, on the working copy of trunk. In particular, corresponding to
your 4th line of transcript above, it would try to move folder/
test.txt to newfolder/test.txt, which can't work because there is no
longer any folder/test.txt in the trunk.
