You do see a directory under change001: the java_imports directory you told it to copy there. What did you expect to see instead?

If you wanted it to be in a "test" directory then you should presumably instead type:

$ svn copy --parents file:///home/x/repo/trunk/test/java_imports file:///home/x/repo/tag/change001/test/

or maybe:

$ svn copy --parents file:///home/x/repo/trunk/test/java_imports file:///home/x/repo/tag/change001/test/java_imports

You probably don't need to (and in fact shouldn't) "svn mkdir" the change001 directory first.

Usually, when you want to tag something, you just copy the entire trunk, i.e.:

$ svn copy file:///home/x/repo/trunk file:///home/x/repo/tag/change001
