Hmmm... I was wrong about that.

With a trunk build of svn the problem still exists:

$ svn cp ^/trunk/epsilon_at_2 ^/trunk/epsilon3_at_HEAD -m copy

Committed revision 4.
$ svn up
A epsilon3_at_HEAD
A epsilon3_at_HEAD/zeta

The '@' in the copy target path is used literally. This needs to be fixed.
