recently I had to do a diff between two file revisions:
revision 1: (after the initial import)

svn diff -r 1:200 test.cpp

svn: RA layer request failed

file not found: transaction `7i', path `/branches/new_stuff'
[404, #160013]

svn cat -r 1 test.cpp:

svn: RA layer request failed
svn: PROPFIND of /repos/!svn/bc/1/branches/new_stuff/test.cpp: 404 Not Found

svn cat -r 200 test.cpp:

OK, I'll get a correct revision.

I can retrieve every version after the branch was made, but anything
prior to it
gives me an error.

If I try to access older revisions of the file from the 'trunk', I am
not having
a problem. Accessing revison 1 of the mentioned file gives the correct

I am using version 0.17.1-0 (debian) both on client and server.
