svn cat -r Bug in 1.3.1?

i've got a little problem with the revision-option (-r // --revision)
using svn cat.

There is a little test repository with this history:

- in revision 2 i've added two files: test1.txt and test2.txt
- in revision 3 i've removed test2.txt
- in revision 4 i've modified test1.txt

Now i would do this: Get the content of test2.txt in revision 2 -
without any checkout of this file. So i'll use svn cat - exactly:

svn cat -r 2 svn://..../test2.txt

So this should return the content of test2.txt-file in revision 2 - but
i only get the error message:

svn: File not found: Revision 4, path '/test2.txt'

I've told svn cat, i want to get the revision 2 content - but it will
deliver the revision 4 (HEAD) to me (and test2.txt is not available in
this version...)

If i use

svn cat svn://..../test2.txt_at_2

it works correct - and i get the file in correct version.

Is this a known "feature"?

Best regards
