Thanks for the explanation, it all makes sense now. I can use svn log
manually to find what the URL was at revision X.

However, for a Windows client looking directly at the repository (TSVN's
repo-browser) that is an extra step which will take time, possibly a very
long time. Is there a command line switch which allows me to tell svn that
the filename I am specifying refers to revision Y (normally HEAD), so that
it can trace the history back and find the filename it should really be
using, in the same way that it does with the wc? This would avoid adding a
whole load of extra server connections and transactions to solve a problem
which only comes up occasionally.

Simon.
