accidentily created directory remains

I want to reorganize my repository and create a trunk/branch structure.

I moved the former root to /trunk and created a /branch directory and commited it with the repository. Now I wanted to create the
specific branch. I accidentily used

  svn copy /trunk/Product /branch/x.y/Product

This copied the complete tree below Product to the new branch. I deleted the local x.y/Product tree and used

  svn revert /branch

before any commit. Now I wanted to create the directories x.y and Product and "svn copy" the directories to Product. Unfortunately
this doesnt work:

  svn mkdir x.y
  svn: 'x.y' is already under version control

I tried to revert, update and cleanup. But I cant get rid off the x.y directory:

  cd /branch
  svn cleanup .
  svn st
  ! x.y

  svn revert .
  svn st
  ! x.y

  svn update
  At revision 114.

  svn st
  ! x.y

But the repository doesn hold this directory:

  svn ls
  (no entries listed here)

How do I get in sync again and copy efficiently specific directories from the trunk to the branches?
