If you schedule a file for deletion, then commit that deletion, the
file no longer exists in your working copy. So you can't run svn
commands that ask questions about it.... it's gone.

Instead of querying the no-longer-existent wc path, you have to query
the repository instead, using a URL. And you already figured out how
to do that.

So I don't think there's a bug here, this is how 'svn cat', 'svn ls',
and many other commands work.
