I believe this matches the behavior you would get if you were using
path-based permissions and the svnsync user did not have read
permission to the paths in the revision. Could that be the reason?
You could also get this if you did not specify the URL to the root of
the repository. Any revision that does not touch the path you
specified would just sync an empty revision.
