svn diff -r xx dies

Try this:

  svn diff -r 1758

or this:

  svn diff -r1758

(or some valid revision number if 1758 isn't valid in your subversion tree).

For me, both of the above commands generate a dialog box starting with:

  Subversion Client has encountered a problem and needs to close.

I'm on Cygwin / Windows XP and am using:
 svn, version 1.3.0 (r17949)
 compiled Jan 15 2006, 23:18:48

There are at least two issues here.

First, it'd be nice if subversion handled the error without abruptly
dying with a fatal error like this. It'd be helpful if, instead of dying,
subversion printed a useful error message, e.g., a usage message if this
is happening because of a command line syntax problem.

Second, maybe it'd be a nice convenience feature to have "svn diff -r
1758" be equivalent to

  svn diff -r 1757:1758

(which works fine for me).

I searched for "diff" in the issue list and didn't see this there.

I'm not on the mailing list - please respond directly if you would like
more info.
