That is what I'm doing to work around the problem. This doesn't seem
intuitive though and I'm wondering if perhaps the Subversion developers
didn't think of this case when implementing this feature. It took a while
for me to determine what the problem was and I would like it if no one else
had to waste that time.

Can any Subversion developer weigh in on this?
