export command not reporting any problem with nonexistent url?

am using SVN 1.4.2 on a Linux system. I have a script that is attempting to check the return code from an svn export command like the following:


svn --username username --password password export https://this.is.the.svn.url/project_name/tags/dev/nonexistent_tag ./project_name


In this case, I _know_ that the tag directory I have named DOES NOT EXIST in the repository, yet the “svn export” command not only returns 0 as the return code, it also does not even report that the directory doesn’t exist. I just get the output “Export complete.”, and a 0 for exit code, as though the command completed successfully.


When I first started testing my export script against this same repository, it would report the nonexistent directory and return a nonzero exit code. Now it doesn’t. Is this a bug? A problem with my repository? Or is is some kind of setting change made on the SVN server that could have caused this?
