You will also get this is you create the branch twice. ie, starting with:

Branch/
  [empty]
Trunk/
  Dir1/
  Dir2/

And then doing:
  svn copy http://...../Trunk http://...../Branch/Rel_1.0
gives you:

Branch/
  Rel_1.0/
    Dir1/
    Dir2/
Trunk/
  Dir1/
  Dir2/

If you then do
  svn copy http://...../Trunk http://...../Branch/Rel_1.0
(again), you will get:

Branch/
  Rel_1.0/
    Dir1/
    Dir2/
    Trunk/
      Dir1/
      Dir2/
Trunk/
  Dir1/
  Dir2/

which when you think about it is the same behaviour that cp (or copy)
gives you on a local filesystem.
