"Invalid editor anchoring" error during diff

From: Stuart A. Malone <samalone_at_llamagraphics.com>

I'm getting an error message that I don't understand from subversion
1.0.4. The error message is:

        svn: Invalid editor anchoring; at least one of
        the input paths is not a directory and there was
        no source entry

I'm confused because the repository URL I'm specifying _is_ for a
directory, and the URL works with the "log" and "list" commands.

Here's a command line transcript, with the error at the bottom:

[Zephyr:~] samalone% svn --version

svn://whirlwind/trunk/Projects/Life%20Balance/Conduit

directory and there was no source entry

Any ideas on why this is happening? My real goal is to merge these
changes into another branch, but I get the same error when I attempt
the merge. I assume that if I can resolve the diff error then I will
resolve the merge error as well.
