Specifying Branch/Tag and Revision

From: Rush Manbert <rush_at_manbert.com>

I have svn copied trunk to branches/myTestBranch, which created revision
706 in my repository. I then tried this checkout:

svn co svn+ssh://repos/base/branches/myTestBranch ~/myTestCheckout
--revision 700

The checkout completes and I do this:

svn info ~/myTestCheckout

and I see that the URL for the working copy is


I can understand why specifying revision 700 could trace back through
the branch copy to the trunk. I assume the behavior would be the same
for my tags directory tree.

My question is this: Is this the expected behavior? My expectation was
that this would fail because the branch doesn't exist in revisions prior
to 706, so I was surprised by what I saw.
