possible bug: difference between client API and command-line client

Subversion version: 1.1.3

I'm trying to translate a perl script using the svn command line client to use the perl API.

Part of the script executes the following commands:
   svn copy $SVNURL/trunk $SVNURL/tags/$tagname -m "Tagging $tagname"
   svn propset svn:author --revprop -r HEAD $Author $SVNURL/trunk
   svn propset svn:date --revprop -r HEAD $Datum $SVNURL/trunk
Where the $ things are perl variables.

This works fine.

However, when I translate the above sequence of commands to use the perl API, I get:
   Bad property name: Revision property 'svn:author' not allowed in this context at pvcs2svn.pl line 513

Googling for this tells me that this is issue 1584 (http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=1584)
and that it was checked in around November 2003 (http://svn.haxx.se/dev/archive-2003-11/1047.shtml).

If this is illegal, why does the command line client allow it?
