Attempted to set entry in immutable node

While attempting to create a tag with the following command I received the
following error.


svn copy --non-interactive --message "labeled by Anthill" -r "{2009-06-10
20:06:59 +0000}" URL_TO_BRANCH URL_TO_TAG


svn: Attempted to set entry in immutable node

The timing of this seems to coincide with when a developer deleted some
directories from the branch. Attempts to create a tag from the same branch
after this work fine.

Is this a bug? I found the Subversion source code where this error is
output (http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/subversion/libsvn_fs_fs/dag.c),
but I'm not sure what it means. Is there a small window of time when the
repository prevents tag creation if a delete is taking place? Perhaps a bug
with how the date as a revision is computed when a transaction like this is
in progress?

The server is running 1.5.4 on a Solaris 10 box. The client is running
1.5.1 on a Solaris 10 box. I ran svnadmin verify on the repository without
any problems. Repository format is 5. DB format is 3, layout linear.
