What you are seeing is (essentially) the last revision in which the
node in our versioning filesystem changed. Keep in mind that
Subversion uses global revision numbers, so "revision 24 of test.txt"
doesn't mean that that file has been edited 24 times -- it simply
means "the snapshot of test.txt at the time global revision 24 was

Judging by your example, it would seem that test.txt was modified in
revisions 24 and 27 (perhaps among others, too), but not in 25 or 26.

By "diff -r 24:27 ... doesn't work", what do you mean? You saw no
diffs? What output do you get when you run 'svn log -v test.txt'?
