Bug/Inconsistent Behavior in svnlook?

I wanted to run this past you guys as it seems strange to me. I just got
finished converting about 5 years worth of CVS history over to Subversion.
My weekend project is recreating some of the database tables our SCM uses to
be consistent with Subversion pathing and our new repository layout.

My script for repopulating the db was making use of svn info, and I ran
across the weirdest thing.

[root@alcmene bin]# svnlook info -r 30661 /svn

svn: Inconsistent line ending style

(My assumption is that some editor this dev was using mangled the line
endings on the log message template.)

However, this *does* work:

[root@alcmene bin]# svnlook log -r 30661 /svn
Active Issues:
Resolved Issues: TA95
Description (what changed and why): Added attribute FileFrame.

My guess is, assuming I'm right about the cause, that both of these should
behave the same way. Either it should work in both cases or it should error
in both cases. (My extremely selfish vote being to work in both cases.)

Is this a bug or expected behavior?
