This is "impossible" in the sense that 'svnlook cat' does not process
the contents in any way, it just prints them to stdout.

You're probably piping the output of 'svnlook cat' into some kind of
program or script that validates them, and I suspect that script is
interpreting the contents so that it lists the directory contents as you
described. You should most likely look for the bug in your validation
