Question on diff across directory copies

From: Christian Daudt <csd_ob_at_daudt.org>

 When I do a diff of a checked out directory (that at some point in the past
was "cp"ed from somewhere else) against a revision from before the "cp"
ocurred, it fails, like this example:

svn mkdir dir1
echo "line1" >>dir1/file1
svn commit
echo "line2" >>dir1/file1
svn commit
svn cp dir1 dir2
cd dir2
svn diff -r <rev-where-file1-was-first-created>

fails complaining that
svn: Filesystem has no item
svn: file not found: revision `3', path `/base/dir2'

but if I manually do it, providing all of the info it works:
svn diff <BASE>/dir1/file1@<rev-where-file1-was-first-created>

returns what I was expecting. Is this limited this way by design, or is it
work-yet-to-be-done ?
