This is not intended behavior, it looks like a serious bug.

Since I already asked you to file one bug for us (regarding
http://bugs.debian.org/cgi-bin/bugreport.cgi?bug=301989), I'll take
care of filing this one :-).

Done:

   http://subversion.tigris.org/issues/show_bug.cgi?id=2333

By the way, while I was poking around in the mailing list archives to
file the above, I ran across the archive URL for your other bug
report, 301989, the one about trashing your terminal by diffing a
symbolic link. Since the finding things in the archives can sometimes
be a pain, I thought I'd save you time by giving you that URL now:
