svnlook diff error

I'm experiencing the following error with svnlook:

$ svnlook diff -r 6 /repos
$ svn: Error creating dir '/tmp' (path exists)
$ svn: Can't open file '/tmp/svnlook.1/repos/TestProj/trunk/test.php': No
such file or directory

I've also tried it with 'svnlook diff /repos -r 6', but I experience the
same error. The Subversion book shows an example of svnlook diff with the
revision switch before the repository path, but the commit-email.pl script
performs it in the reverse fashion.

At any rate, it seems to me like it's probably a bug for svnlook to die if
the directory it wants is already created.

My setup:
Mac OS X 10.2.8
Subversion 1.01

I first noticed the problem in output from commit-email.pl -- I then
attempted the same command on the command line, and had the same error.

Does anyone have any ideas for a workaround? Or should I go ahead and submit
this as a bug?
