Thanks for that.

Now, I think I know where it fails, but I'm not sure (I don't have such
a repository at hand to test it).

Can you please try the following command with the CL client:

svn info http://yourserver/repo/file@HEAD -rXXXX
where the URL is the URL (not working copy path) of the file you show
the log for, and XXXX the revision before the server update.

If that works, try the following diff command:

svn diff http://yourserver/repo/file@HEAD -rnewrevision:oldrevision
