Hi Julian,

What's special about it is that svn diff x:BASE asserts and the other
cases are handled, albeit inconsistently. My thought was just to prevent
the assert - that's my rather lame excuse anyway since I *did* include the
svn diff BASE:x case which the current code doesn't assert on. As you
say, it does makes more sense to handle all these invalid diffs in a
consistent manner...

...so to that end here is a new log and patch.

Thanks for checking this out,

Paul B.

Return consistent error on svn diff of special revisions BASE, COMMITTED,
or PREV when operating on a URL.

The original impetus for this patch was to stop svn diff 1:BASE URL from
asserting and provide a more useful error message.

* subversion/svn/diff-cmd.c
   (svn_cl__diff): If the starting or ending revision against a URL is
    COMMITTED, or PREV return an error.
