This is because that directory did not exist in revision 39. You have
stumbled on a bug that has annoyed me yet I have been unable to convince
the developers that it is a bug. If you look at your log output,
subdir2renamed did not exist in rev 35, 36, 37, 38, and 39. It was
created in rev 40 by copying from rev 34. Because of this, subversion
thinks it existed in rev 40, and in revs prior to 35, but not in
between, thus your request to look at the contents or history of the
file in those revisions fails.
