svn: Directory '...' is missing and copy/tag issues

Dear Experts,

I have the following problem with permissions and copy in svn:

1. User A has permissions to see /trunk except for /trunk/bar which is
2. User A tries to do something like "svn copy svn://server/repo/trunk
svn://server/repo/branches/stuff", which fails with the message "svn:
Access Denied".
3. User A does a local checkout of trunk (which excludes the
/trunk/bar directory as desired)
4. User A does a local checkout of /branches which works fine.
5. User A does svn copy local-copy-of-trunk
local-copy-of-branches/stuff which basically works but gives the
message "svn: Directory '...' is missing"

It seems like svn won't let user A do a remote copy of /trunk to
/branches/stuff unless user A has permission to read ALL of trunk. Is
this correct? If so, this is very troublesome because it prevents
anyone without full access from making a copy or a tag of anything. Is
there a work-around?
