cat works with fully qualified URLs but not with relative paths

I'm not sure if this is a bug or just something I'm doing wrong. I have
created a subversion repository that I am accessing via apache. The
repository root (?) is accessible at http://myserver/svn/

I checked out a copy of a subdirectory only with this command:

    svn checkout http://myserver/svn/subdir/

I have proceeded to check in a fair number of items into this subdirectory
(700+ files, about 50 MB). I deleted a few files to get a feel for how
things work, I was able to use these commands from within my working copy:

    svn delete testfile
    svn commit -m "Test delete"

That worked fine. Now here is where I'm getting puzzled. Trying to recover
the file with cat:

    svn cat --revision 11 test

Subversion gives these error messages:

    svn: Entry has no url
    svn: 'test' has no URL

The command was issued within the appropriate directory of my working copy.

This command works:

    svn cat --revision 11 http://myserver/svn/subdir/test

Since relative paths are accepted by svn when doing an add or delete I would
also expect them to be accepted when doing a cat. Is this a bug, a missing

I'm using subversion 0.25 on the server side and svn 0.24.2 on the client,
could this be an issue?
