That sounds like just a bug, and a serious one too. (By the way, it
would help to include the relevant context from your original mail --
I happeed to still have a copy, so I went back and looked at it.)

Have you determined that the diff is actually between r0 and r1163, or
is it just a matter of the diff labels being incorrect (i.e., it
claims to be from r0 to r1163, but in fact it shows the difference
between r831 and r1163)?

Either way it's still a bug, but the first way would be a more severe
bug. If you could file an issue, ideally with a reproduction case,
that would be great. If you can't construct a reproduction case, but
your current repository is not private, then we can just use that

Of course, all this assumes that you're encountering the bug with the
latest Subversion, 0.28.2... Oh, which has apparently not gotten to
the end of the release process yet. Well, just update to HEAD of
Subversion and use that. (If you were running 0.27 or lower, this may
involve a repository dump and load, see

Below I've included the context from your original mail, so it's clear
to others what we're talking about.
