[Subclipse-users] Weird problem with Compare With > Branch/Tag

I'm having this weird problem with Eclipse's "Compare With > Branch/Tag"
when used against a SVN repository (Eclipse 3.2.1, Subclipse 1.0.3). I've
created a small test repository that illustrates the problem (dump file is
attached). There's only single file, Sample/src/hello/Hello.java. The file
is created under "/trunk" in r2, then copied to a branch (/branches/R1.0)
in r3, and modified on that branch in r4. Then, in r5, it's modified under
/trunk, under /branches/R1.0 in r6, and finally under /trunk again in

Now, if I export this repository using svnserve such that it's accessible
as svn://localhost/test, I can't compare the "branch" version (r6) to the
"trunk" version (r7) correctly. Strangely enough, the inverse works
perfectly fine.

In other words, if I
- Check out the /trunk
- Compare With > Branch/Tag
- Select the /branches/R1.0 copy
Then the diff viewer correctly shows the diff between r7 and r6.

The inverse, however, i.e.
- Check out the /branches/R1.0 copy
- Compare With > Branch/Tag
- Select the /trunk
Brings up a diff between r6 (correct, this is the local copy), and r5 (not

And if all that wasn't weird enough already, if I export the repository as
svn://localhost/, then everything works fine! Huh?
