This behavior is correct and matches that of the Unix copy command:
"cp a b" creates a directory "a" inside "b" if "b" already exists,
otherwise it copies "a" to "b". To get the behavior you wanted,
simply do not create the directory "Allison" in advance, and let the
"svn copy" command create it for you.
