I seen a number of revisions in repositories like this. I haven't taken the
time to determine how they happen or which client generates them.

BTW, there's nothing in the svn_fs.h API that prevents this from happening. You
can easily begin a transaction and just commit it with no modifications.

I guess it could be a bug at some level of the Subversion API.
