Problem with --revision option on deleted files

I have a file, say "stuff.txt" that existed in my repository in
revision 10 that was subsequently deleted in revision 11.

If I run
svn cat file:///repository/stuff.txt --revision 10
svn cat file:///repository/stuff.txt -r 10
I get a message saying:
svn: File not found: revision 11, path 'stuff.txt'

on the other hand running
svn cat file:///repository/stuff.txt_at_10
works fine and prints the content of the file stuff.txt

Other svn subcommands, for example svn info or svn log exhibit the
same behavior.

Putting the command switches before the URL had no effect.

Running svn cat stuff.txt -r 10 on a working copy did cause the file
to be printed.

Seems like this is a bug in handling the --revision and -r options
for deleted files in the repository.
