Good question, I was using the repository URLs just to be sure of cases
like this, but apparently that isn't enough. I have gone back and
confirmed that this occurs even when I'm outside of a working copy.

In fact, it occured to me that this should be visible on any public
subversion repository that used a server side svn copy operation. Even
the repository of svn itself:

Here is the most recent log entry for the build subdirectory of
subversion in the 1.6.9 tag:

svn log --stop-on-copy http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.6.9/build
------------------------------------------------------------------------
r901401 | hwright | 2010-01-20 17:08:30 -0500 (Wed, 20 Jan 2010) | 1
line

Tag 1.6.9 release with svn_version.h matching tarball.
------------------------------------------------------------------------

But if you request svn info on the same URL it shows a different
revision as the most recent change:

$ svn info http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/subversion/tags/1.6.9/build | grep ^Last
Last Changed Author: hwright
Last Changed Rev: 884204
Last Changed Date: 2009-11-25 12:23:50 -0500 (Wed, 25 Nov 2009)
