[BUG] svn diff header

svn diff if diffing between a rev that the file doesn't exist in and a
working copy with modifications returns a header showing the "old" file
as revision 0 and the "new" file as whatever your BASE is.

duplication recipe:

svn co http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/trunk/subversion/bindings/swig/perl/t/
modify the 1repos.t file
svn diff -r 6750 1repos.t

You'll get this as the output:
--- 1repos.t (revision 0)
+++ 1repos.t (revision 8072)

Increasing the rev by one gives:
--- 1repos.t (revision 6751)
+++ 1repos.t (working copy)

The diff is correct in both cases. Just the header is wrong.
