Because the default operative revision is HEAD and there's no such
object in HEAD, yes.

You need both peg and operative revisions:

-r 18 ../fold1 fold1_at_18
-r 18 ../fold2/file1.txt_at_18 file1.txt

The peg revision tells Subversion which object to look for and the
operative revision tells it which version of that object to use.
