But that's correct: the previous revision of that file is the one from
where it was copied from. TSVN has to follow the copyfrom path,
otherwise (in case of a rename) it wouldn't find the file at /alpha_at_7611
because the file would have another name in r7611.

Sure, if you only copied the file without any modifications, the diff
isn't really useful. But it often happens that you copy a file in your
working copy, modify it and then commit it. So you would actually get a
diff in this situation.
