svn diff with differing permissions

From: Jim Paris <jim_at_jtan.com>

I am using authz on a 1.2.0 server. My authz file contains something

  * =
  jim = rw

  * = r
  jim = rw

(ie, /aaa is world-readable, but nothing else is). The command

  svn diff https://jim.sh/svn/jim/aaa/ https://jim.sh/svn/jim/bbb/

fails with error

  svn: REPORT request failed on '/svn/jim/!svn/vcc/default'
  svn: Not authorized to open root of edit operation

and Apache reports:

  A failure occurred while driving the update report editor [500, #220000]
  Not authorized to open root of edit operation [500, #220000]

Switching the arguments so that the one that requires authentication
comes first:

  svn diff https://jim.sh/svn/jim/bbb/ https://jim.sh/svn/jim/aaa/

works correctly. Both "svn diff" commands ask for my password exactly
once. Is this a bug?
