Hmm, this works as I expect

svn diff -r4149:HEAD \
 --old http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/dev/ \
 --new http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/client-side/ \

as does this

svn diff -r4149:HEAD \
 --old http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/dev/bash_completion \
 --new http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/client-side/bash_completion

and this

svn diff \
 --old \
 http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/tools/dev/bash_completion@4149 \
 --new \
