[TSVN] TortoiseSVN does not manage to compare the same file from different branches and revisions

I searched mailing lists and Issue Tracker for this issue, but I did
not manage to find it.

I am using currently using TortoiseSVN 1.2.1 (Build 3895) on Windows
XP with Subversion 1.2.1 installed on AIX PowerPC server
called "hades". I access Subversion Via WebDAV.

Here is what I do:
- I merge a branch to my trunk.
- When navigating through the trunk of my application source in the
explorer, I right-click on the only file I have and choose
"TortoiseSVN > Revision Graph".
- when in the revision graph, I select two revisions from differents
branches. For example: revisions 13 and 11, or revisions 13 and 10,
or revisons 12 and 9 of main.c .
- Then I right-click and choose "Compare revisions" and obtain a
dialog whose name is "Changed File" showing that
http://hades/svn/repository/trunk/main.c/main.c had changed.
Unfortunately, I do not have any
http://hades/svn/repository/trunk/main.c/ directory.
- When I right-click on it, I expect to see the differences between
the two revisions. Unfortunately, I have the following error instead:
"PROPFIND request failed on '/svn/trunk/main.c/main.c'
Could not open the requested SVN filesystem"

Note that when I choose "Unified diff" instead of "Compare revisions",
it works fine and shows me the expected differences. I have the same
result with command line "svn diff

Here is my revision graph:
Please note that /trunk/main.c rev 13 is a merge between
/branches/trunk/main.c rev 12 and /trunk/main.c rev 9.
This merge was done on the server side via http.
Why does not it appear with a link between rev 13 and rev 12 ?

| Revision 13 |
| /trunk/main.c |
       | +------------------------+
       | | Revision 12 |
       | | /branches/trunk/main.c |
       | +------------------------+
       | |
       | +------------------------+
       | | Revision 11 |
       | +-| /branches/trunk/main.c |
       | +-------------------+ | +------------------------+
       | | Revision 10 | |
       | +-| /tag/trunk/main.c |-+
       | | +-------------------+
+---------------+ |
| Revision 9 |-+
| /trunk/main.c |
| Revision 4 |
| /trunk/main.c |
| Revision 3 |
| /trunk/main.c |
| Revision 2 |
| /trunk/main.c |
