I assume you copied Project 2 using your normal OS commands and named
it Project 3. In doing so, you also copied the .svn directories
contained therein, which link that directory with the Project 2 path
in the repository.

A better way to do this would have been to use Subversion commands to
copy the project.

svn cp "Project 2" "Project 3"

Make sure there are no changes in Project 2 at the time that you do

Since you've already committed the previous attempt, and it wasn't
what you wanted, you'll probably have to undo it. Undoing changes is
addressed in the book:
