Well, no *I* don't expect svn log to give me revision numbers that don't
work, either. But I'm pretty sure there is no way you could have got svn log
to tell you that branches/1.1.x-r14063 existed in r1.

I think you have tried to show us a minimal example of your problem, but
have actually trimmed your actual problem away in trying to minimize the
example, leaving behind a useless command.
