user2 is trying to copy /trunk/specialfile to somewhere where he'd
be able to read it. So Subversion blocks it. In order to create
a branch from trunk, you need read access to trunk and every file
inside it.

Perhaps /trunk/specialfile can be moved somewhere else, so you can
remove this restrictive permission? (This may require you to dump
the repository and use "svndumpfilter" to get rid of the historical
revisions of /trunk/specialfile).

Kind regards,
