It's not inconsistent because the first command you give is specifically
targeting a file, while the second is implicitly targeting a current

So if the directory is at r7 and the file is at r9, then the first
command will list the file at r9, while the second command will list the
contents of the directory *as it exists in the repository* at r7.

Either that or get in the habit of doing an "svn up" after committing.
