Double-XML escape bug in svn log --xml -v

We just had a problem with the XML output of svn log -xml -v. When the copyfrom-path
contains an XML special character, it gets XML encoded twice:

   action="D">/project/Jeff's File</path>
   copyfrom-path="/project/Jeff&amp;apos;s File"
   action="A">/project/Dave's File</path>
<msg>This is Dave's now.

In svn/svn-log.c, log_entry_receiver_xml() calls svn_xml_escape_attr_cstring()
and passes the result to svn_xml_make_open_tag(), but that function already
escapes any attribute values.

Is this documented|known|desired behavior? If not, would fixing it break anything
