cat and list do not correctly 'look through' renames

Here, we recently migrated from VSS to SVN. What a relief! SVN is so much better in so many ways.

There seems to be a relatively minor problem with the interaction between rename and list or cat.

I have searched the issue tracker for a few likely keywords, but can not find a similar bug, so I believe this is a new problem.

I've attached an example (svn-bug.tar.gz) with what I hope is sufficient detail. If I have omitted to provide you with any information, then you are of course welcome to contact me.

This problem is not a high priority for us here (as we are also using TortoiseSVN; another workaround is to update to the appropriate revision in a temporary WC). I regard this as of medium severity. The behaviour is inconvenient but does not cause repos or WC corruption. Given that update works correctly, I'd hope that the problem will not be too hard to fix.

There are more details in the attachment, but briefly:
        svn add dir1/file1.txt
        svn commit ; svn update
        # now at revision 321, say
        svn rename dir1 dir1_renamed
        svn commit ; svn update
        svn cat -r321 svn:///.../repos/dir1/file1.txt
        # does not work, despite that file existing in the tree of that revision

Problem present in svn 1.2.0 and 1.2.3, Windows binaries.
