I don't think this works any more and I updated the trunk docs
recently to reflect this. I queried it on the subversion dev list and
it is only intended to work on file specs. If it works on folders at
all then it is considered a bug, so even if it works now it quite
possibly won't in future.

You need to ask on the subversion mailing list to report this as a bug
or request different behaviour.
