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.
