I've tested with a modified version of your script over http://,
svn://, and file://, and can't reproduce the bug (using latest dev
Subversion). In all cases, test_file appears only in trunk/.

Maybe there's some small chance that https:// could cause it, but I
consider that highly unlikely. Whatever you're observing is almost
certainly a client-side problem in 1.1.4, as the client reports the
working copy to the server. I don't think we've ever had a bug where
the RA layer in use changed the client's report in such a dramatic
way.

Here's the script I used, basically yours with some modifications for
portability and convenience:

--------------------8-<-------cut-here---------8-<-----------------------
#!/bin/bash

# Which Subversion binaries to use -- by default, development versions.
BIN_PREFIX=/home/kfogel/src/subversion
SVN=${BIN_PREFIX}/subversion/svn/svn
SVNSERVE=${BIN_PREFIX}/subversion/svnserve/svnserve
SVNADMIN=${BIN_PREFIX}/subversion/svnadmin/svnadmin

# Choose one of these three access methods by {un}commenting.
# In the http:// case, you'll also need to set up something in
# httpd.conf, for example:
#
# <Location /repro>
# DAV svn
# SVNParentPath /home/kfogel/src/repro-dir
# </Location>
#
# URL=http://localhost/repro/repos
URL=svn://localhost/repos
# URL=file:///`pwd`/repos

cd ..

# copy that result to repository tag, then list the repository
${SVN} copy -m "create mytag" wc ${URL}/tags/mytag
${SVN} list --verbose --recursive ${URL}

# Shut down svnserve.
kill -9 `cat svnserve-pid`
