That's not very surprising. Because of the location of the file in question
in your WC, and the Subversion URL that was checked out to make the WC, you
are asking for revision (e.g.) 50 *of a particular file name*. And there
was no file of that name in revision 50. In revision 50, there was a file
of a different name that is the ancesor of your file name in revision 100,
but that's something different.
