And there's more. I have now found that I _can_ check the differences
between revisions either side of a name/path change. I am using TSVN, so I
am not sure of the exact command mapping, but I guess it is using svn diff.

Looks like the problem has already been solved in svn diff, but not
propagated through to svn cat. Is this correct, and if so, when is a fix
likely?
