Take a look at the info about mixed repositories in the Subversion book.

I believe that:

"svn list -v" has an implied argument of "." -- the directory in your
working copy (WC), which is most likely at rev 2. The repos is not
accessed over the network for this information.

"svn list -r 16 -v" goes to the repository because you specified the
revision you want and since your WC is at a different rev (rev 2), the
repos must be asked what is in rev 16.

If you were to do an "svn up; svn list -v", you'll get the answers you
are expecting.
