Bug in "svn ls -r REV URL"?

From: Ray Johnson <rayj_at_ingenio.com>

I have a repository with an old directory that has been deleted.
 
I can do the following to see the old directory:
 
c:> svn ls -r 1000 http://svn/MyRepro/trunk
src/
lib/
old_dir/
 
 
I can even get the directory and all of it's children with an export or
checkout or trunk
c:> svn export -r 1000 http://svn/MyRepro/trunk
 
However, all operations like export, ls, etc. fail when I try to operate
on the old directory itself. For example:
C:\src\temp>svn export -r 1000 http://svn/MyRepro/trunk/old_dir/
svn: REPORT request failed on '/MyRepro/!svn/bc/34291/trunk/old_dir'
svn: '/MyRepro/!svn/bc/34291/trunk/old_dir' path not found
 
 
If I understand the error message at all it can't seem to find old_dir
in the HEAD revision. Well duh - I know it's not there.
 
The bug appears to exist in the fact that isn't properly taking into
account the -r flag when determining if the path even exists.
