svn ls/co -r <rev> does not work on deleted or moved directories

1) create a repo with a few directories
2) commit some stuff
3) delete a directory at revision 42
4) commit some more stuff
5) do an svn co -r 41 svn://path/to/deleted/dir
-> this will fail with a "file/directory not found" error

Interestingly, using the @ notation
svn co svn://path/to/deleted/dir_at_41 works fine.

Same is true for svn ls, using -r<num> in svn:externals properties
and probably a few other places as well.

I had a look at the issue tracker but couldnt find any related entry.
