Potential bug: Retrieve old revision after moving file

From: Schmitt, Michael <m.schmitt_at_fgan.de>

Hello everybody,

how can I view an old revision of a file that was moved sometime in

I am really puzzled because

   svn cat -r1 foo.java

does not work. (The command above was executed in the destination
directory of the move operation, i.e., "foo.java" refers to the
currently existing version of the file). This is what SVN says:

    "svn: File not found: revision '1', path 'blabla'


   svn diff -r1 foo.java

works whereas

   svn diff -r1:HEAD foo.java

does _not_.

So how can I retrieve the old version? If old revisions are lost in
space after a move operation, than this definitely more than just an
enhancement but a real showstopper.

Beside this: Thank you very much for an excellent tool!

Regards, Michael
