svn cat broken by folder rename in repository

If I rename a folder in the repository, svn cat seems unable to traverse the
rename to get old revisions. This shows up in TortoiseSVN (where I
originally reported the problem) when I try to do a visual diff, for which
TSVN needs access to both revisions. Using TSVN 1.1.0 RC1, which is built on
SVN 1.1.0 RC2.

Seems that an
'svn cat /Bert/test.c -r2'
doesn't really work.
