Getting diff of a new file

From: Giovanni Bajo <rasky_at_develer.com>

I added foo.c as part of the commit r124. When I run this command line:

svn diff -r123:124

I get the diff of the whole commit, including the diff of the new file that was
added (just like a diff against /dev/null). But if I try to single out the new

svn diff -r123:124 foo.c

I get this error:

svn: Unable to find repository location for 'foo.c' in revision 123

Is there a way to get this diff? While I understand that the error message is
strictly correct, I believe that it's unfortunate that svn diff -r[N-1]:[N]
work for modified files but not for new files. Should I file a ticket for this?
