svn commands and dos redirection

Hi,

Under Windows XP, with svn 1.6.17 (I also tried with 1.7.4) running
svn pl -R -v .
works as expected (I get a line "properties on <item>, followed by the
properties), for each item.

But when I redirect the same command to a file:
svn pl -R . >foo.txt
the output in the resulting file is out of order: the "propeties on '.'
" line shows up after 658 lines of properties! And it is followed by 100
lines "properties on". There are long blocks of properties without
"properties on" header.

adding the --xml option keeps the proper order, both on console and when
redirected.

This makes it difficult to write DOS scripts that handle svn output...I
have also tried using loops instead of redirection, but things still
show out of order:
FOR /F "usebackq tokens=* " %% IN in (`svn pl -R -v .>`) DO (ECHO %%G)
I also try piping, no luck, the following gives a messed up output too:
svn pl -R -v . | more

I ended up looping on each item, calling svn pl each time, but this is
painful (dealing with hidden items etc...)

svn pg seems to be working.

Is it just me? Or a defect? Any workaround (other than --xml or using
something more evolved than batch file)? Would there be other commands
affected?

Thanks

Christophe
