svn copy failed, commits go to trunk?

I'm fairly new to svn, so maybe I'm doing something stupid, but it seems
to me right now that svn has the problem. I did something similar to


svn copy trunk branch

svn commit -m"Yay branching!" branch

cd branch_directory

work work work

svn commit -m"All done working!"

cd trunk_directory

svn update

svn merge

  - Nothing to merge...

svn log

  - All my branch changes are here on the trunk



So looking at my console I see the following:

svn apparently choked with the original 'svn copy' when copying part of
the .svn directory (I see online this is caused by my anti-virus
software, ok fine)

I ignored the message as my project files were all fine and the initial
commit of the branch succeeded just fine.


So if svn failed with the copy, why did it then proceed to happily
commit changes to the trunk? Why would something produced with svn copy
ever point to the trunk?



Has this or something similar to this ever come up?
