Need diff output explained

Not a noob but really trying to put svn through it paces and predict the output of commands. Sometimes, I get stumped.

These are some home made examples and just when I think I'm making progess, something unexpected pops up.

Here's the first of my questions.

With the following flow, why, when I svn diff on the release_branch, does svn show unexpected paths for the diff? Why doesn't svn stay within the WC of release_branch to display the diffs as in the last example.

Thank you

trunk r2 ____ r5 (copy to devel_branch)
   devel_branch r6 ____ r7 (copy to release_branch)
          release_branch r8

(the examples below are just snippets from the actual output)

cd release_branch

svn diff -r2:7
--- public/pub_file3.pl (.../trunk)     (revision 2)
+++ public/pub_file3.pl (.../branches/devel_branch)     (revision 7)

svn diff -r2:8
--- public/pub_file3.pl (.../trunk)     (revision 2)
+++ public/pub_file3.pl (.../branches/release_branch)   (revision 8)

svn diff -r8:9
--- private/pri_file1.pl        (revision 8)
+++ private/pri_file1.pl        (revision 9)

Disclaimer: Technically, I&#39;m always wrong!!
