no revision log on file that was moved here

Hi all,

there are plenty of posts about log on moved files, but I don't see this
particular case complained about anywhere:

I have a file that was some time ago `svn move'd to my current directory.
`blame' tells me that some line is from revision N. I run `svn log -r N' but
get an empty log message!?

I then cd to my working copy root, run the same log command and voilà,
there's the log message. Here's a transcript using a working copy of trunk,
and also using the svn client compiled from trunk:

[[[

created by julianfoad on the tree-conflicts branch in r30536.

This seems to be a missing feature.
