Using a changelist with the revet command

I have found an odd behaviour with the revert command. Maybe it's intended, but I don't find it very intuitive. I'm using SVN 1.6.9.

If I have a changelist and I want to revert all changes made in all files in the changelist I would use the following

svn revert --changelist <name>

That doesn't work. Not only I have to add the --depth option, but I also have to specify the PATH, so something like

svn revert --depth infinity --changelist <name> .

I don't think either are necessary though. The good thing about changelist is that with one easy command you can work on many files at ones, even if they are in different directories. With the above command, you still can, but from the deepest common directory of all the files in the changelist.

The changelist has the full path of every file, so I would have though that the first command I tried would be enough.

What do you think?
