It's unclear what do you expect.  If you want to get this:

/tmp/dest
/tmp/dest/a
/tmp/dest/a/foo

then you have to remove the final slash in the minibuffer
after calling `dired-do-copy'.  So instead of:

  Copy a to: /home/work/emacs/test/dired-dwim/dest/ RET

you rather need this:

  Copy a to: /home/work/emacs/test/dired-dwim/dest RET

and then it will ask:

  Overwrite `/tmp/dest/a'? [Type yn!q or C-h] n

and then it's better to answer `n'.
