"svn info" to older servers returns nothing

When you query older servers for info, the root of the repository returns
an empty response. Querying subdirectories though, seems to work ok.

I have two ways to reproduce. The easy and first way is the samba repo:

$ svn --version
svn, version 1.4.3 (r23084)
   compiled Mar 23 2007, 09:29:55

The following repository access (RA) modules are available:

* ra_dav : Module for accessing a repository via WebDAV (DeltaV) protocol.
  - handles 'http' scheme
  - handles 'https' scheme
* ra_svn : Module for accessing a repository using the svn network
protocol.
  - handles 'svn' scheme
* ra_local : Module for accessing a repository on local disk.
  - handles 'file' scheme

$ svn info svn://svnanon.samba.org/samba
$ echo $?

$ svn info svn://svnanon.samba.org/samba/trunk

The second way, I setup a test repo with 1.1.4 on a older machine i had
and queried that through svn+ssh:

====== from serverold =======
$ svnadmin --version
svnadmin, version 1.1.4 (r13838)
