svn update -N

Hi all,

I have a repository with many branches, and I would like to check out
the "root" of the repository so that I can make some structural changes.
What I definitely don't want to do is check out the whole repository.

Having gone through the --help and the manual, svn update -N should in
theory be what I need to update all files in a particular directory -
but not recurse into subdirectories.

In this case however, svn update -N is doing nothing at all. No files
appear in the current directory when I know there are files in that
directory in the repository.

[root@fosvn01 fo]# ls -al
total 6
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:27 ..
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:27 .svn
[root@fosvn01 fo]# svn update -N
At revision 536.
[root@fosvn01 fo]# ls -al
total 6
drwxr-xr-x 3 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:27 .
drwxr-xr-x 4 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:27 ..
drwxr-xr-x 7 root root 1024 Apr 22 12:30 .svn

Is this a known bug?

I am using subversion v1.1.3.

Regards,
Graham
