I see. It might be possible to use the binding tests for this, but I no
nothing about them. Is the reason you're not fixing the bug that you can't
test it or is it hard to fix in itself?

BTW, I think we need real libsvn_client tests for stuff like this and
stuff like thi diff_summarize APIs that aren't available through the
cmdline client (yet).
