The problem is that the Allison directory existed before you tried to
do the copy. Its the same as working with the filesystem, 'cp trunk
branches/allison' creates 'branches/allison/trunk' if allison is an
existing directory. If you had only created the branches directory,
not the Allison directory, this should have worked.
