view log problem with path authorisation

I posted this query to the users list but had no response. To me, this is not behaviour I would expect.

Authenticated users with read or r/w authorisation are unable to view logs, eg:

    # svn --username whatever --password xxxxx log svn://svn/repos/project/yada.txt
    svn: Item is not readable

After authentication, users are able to check out files, etc, just not see the logs. For anyone to view logs, I must grant anonymous read access in authz and then it works:

    [/]
        * = r

I've seen this reported earlier but no answer:

Is this a bug or is it expected behaviour?

thanks, Phil
