 From the output of "svn -h" or "svn --help":

usage: svn <subcommand> [options] [args]
Subversion command-line client, version 1.4.2.
Type 'svn help <subcommand>' for help on a specific subcommand.
Type 'svn --version' to see the program version and RA modules
  or 'svn --version --quiet' to see just the version number.

You need to quote the date, otherwise the shell removes the curly braces:

% echo {20061215}
20061215
% echo '{20061215}'
{20061215}

See "svn info -h"

The problem is: you are not reading the documentation. :-)
