export command not reporting any problem with nonexistent url?

I 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


svn --username username --password password export


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?
