Thanks for your response.
Finally, we modify process to do a copy directly on the server.

It looks like the trunk tree is mixed revision and that means the copy has deletes and/or
replaces so that it is a copy of the various different revisions.  While Subversion should
support a mixed-revision copy it may not be what you want when you make a tag.  If you do
want a mixed-revision copy then this appears to be a bug in 1.6.11; that's a very old client
and the problem may be fixed in newer versions.  If you do not wat a mixed-revision copy then
you should run update on trunk to make it single-revision before making the copy.
