Indeed. In addition to explaining your intentions and problem, which
you've done very well, please show us the commands you're using to
implement your approach. Having to guess what you're actually doing
makes giving advice over email harder.

Please show us all svn commands you're running, starting from "putting
snapshots into the tags area" up to "I see a lot files being replaced".
It may well be that a simple tweak to your command sequence could 
fix problems with replacements and the like.

It's usually best to provide a list of commands (a working shell script
is even better) that starts off with an empty repository and ends with
the command where you're running into a problem. This way, others can
try to reproduce the problem and figure out a solution.
