I know what you mean, but if you do a status after the commit nothing
shows up as "missing".

Sorry, I forgot to enumerate that step:

svn del <dir>
svn ci -m '' <dir>
svn st -uN <----- shows *no* changes, nothing missing
svn cp . <tag url> <----- fails with 'missing <dir>' error.

There is a bug *somewhere* in there. I'm betting that the commit failed
to update the parent container's meta-data.

Also - before you say do an update, consider this:
I may be creating a tag (or branch) because I see some updates or
conflicts coming and I just want an easy place to resume my edits. An
update would be BAD.
