svn diff -rHEAD empty when file is locked (bug?)

Hello List,

svn diff -rHEAD seems to report no diff even though there is one, when the
file is locked.

Try :
- svn lock file.txt
- echo "just a change" >> file.txt
- svn diff -rHEAD file.txt (get nothing)
- svn unlock file.txt
- svn diff -rHEAD file.txt (get actual diff)
- svn lock file.txt
- svn diff -rHEAD file.txt (get nothing again)

Suprisingly enough, tkdiff seems to not suffer from this and gives correct
readings in the above case, regardless of lock.

Searching the Bug database does not reveal any similar bug. (should I submit

VERSIONS : svn 1.3.2 compiled from source on Linux i386 RHEL 3. (I will
try to compile 1.4 to see if the problem persists)

Any Help is appreciated :)

thanks - Gal.
