 recently I had to do a diff between two file revisions:
 revision 1: (after the initial import)
 and revision (say) 200: which now resides in a branch)
 
 svn diff -r 1:200 test.cpp
 
 svn: RA layer request failed
 svn: REPORT request failed on /repos/branches/new_stuff
 svn: The REPORT request returned invalid XML in the response: XML
 parse error at line 1: xmlParseStartTag: invalid element name
 .. (/repos/branches/new_stuff)

I believe this is issue #1093:

   http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1093

For now, the workaround is

 svn diff URL1@X URL2@Y, i.e.

 svn diff http://...trunk.../test.cpp@1 http://...branch.../test.cpp@200
