None of the other --changelist commands work that way. (They use the
svn_client_get_changelist call and explicitly check to see if the
changelist is empty.) While commit is implemented differently, I'd
certainly expect this to be a bug. I'd hope to see either no output
or a warning if you call "svn ci --changelist foo" where foo has
elements but has no committables, and an error if you call "svn ci
--changelist footypo" where footypo has no elements at all.
