svn log on deleted items

so are we supposed to be able to use 'svn log' on paths that no longer
exist in the filesystem? i was trying to figure out exactly when
check-diff.sh went away, so the first thing i tried was:

$ svn log http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh
svn: Error string not specified yet
svn: REPORT request failed on /repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh
svn: The REPORT status was 404, but expected 200.

ok... let's try some other arguments... maybe --strict is what i'm
looking for...

$ svn log
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh --strict
svn: Error string not specified yet
svn: REPORT request failed on /repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh
svn: The REPORT status was 404, but expected 200.

ok... maybe not. now i go to the mailing list archives and see that
it was in fact deleted in revision 4121, so let's try this:

$ svn log
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh -r 4121
svn: Error string not specified yet
svn: REPORT request failed on /repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh
svn: The REPORT status was 404, but expected 200.

or maybe:

$ svn log
http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh -r 4121
--strict
svn: Error string not specified yet
svn: REPORT request failed on /repos/svn/trunk/ac-helpers/check-diff.sh
svn: The REPORT status was 404, but expected 200.

ok, so what's the deal? is this a bug? should it work? how is one
supposed to do this kind of thing anyway?
