Yes, if you know to look for it. But in Git it was obvious what happened, 
since its data model is simpler, so I looked first at it :)

	svn rm file:///.../yo/trunk
	svn cp file:///.../yo/trunk@5660 file:///.../yo/trunk

work then?

I'd rather try to restore the trunk tree to 5660 and commit on top of 
that; otherwise you can't do

	svn diff -r 5660:5661 test_basic.py

since SVN thinks 5660 lives in a different directory than 5661 although 
the directories have the same name...

Who said SVN is simple :)
