Unhelpful error message in Subversion

While developing some scripts using the Subversion API, I encountered a
not-very-obvious error message.

Then I tried it from the command line, and found it was exactly the same.

The circumstance is
- I have a sandbox which is checked out from a branch
- I issue 'svn update -r 1700', where revision 1700 happens to be before
this branch was copied.
- SVN replies "REPORT of '/svn/sources/!svn/vcc/default': 200 OK
(http://svn.pace.internal)" which I take to be a WEBDAV status message.

This is easily reproducible, and in my eyes is a bug. I've had a look in
the bugzilla, but I'm not sure what to search for. I've had a google for
it, but the cases being discussed are either not this particular one, or
the people in question hadn't noticed that they were.

svn, version 1.5.4 (r33841)
