Even simpler:

joooj% svn ls -r103182 file:///srv/d_joooj/home/svn/root/perso/tcl/fidelite@103182
joooj% svn ls -r103183 file:///srv/d_joooj/home/svn/root/perso/tcl/fidelite@103183
joooj% svn ls -r103183 file:///srv/d_joooj/home/svn/root/perso/tcl/fidelite@103182
svn: E160016: Failure opening '/perso/tcl/fidelite'
svn: E160016: '/perso/tcl' is not a directory in filesystem '99759db8-4ec0-0310-8bf9-df86780d22d8'
joooj% svn ls -r103182 file:///srv/d_joooj/home/svn/root/perso/tcl/fidelite@103183
svn: E160016: Failure opening '/perso/tcl/fidelite'
svn: E160016: '/perso/tcl' is not a directory in filesystem '99759db8-4ec0-0310-8bf9-df86780d22d8'

Ditto between r103181 and r103182, while the commit r103182 occurred on
an unrelated path.

So, it seems that for this file, if the operative revision is different
from the peg revision, this doesn't work. This is not what is described
at and not
the behavior I can observe on the other files, even in the same
directory. So, this seems to be a bug.

Note: "svnadmin verify /srv/d_joooj/home/svn/root" did not find any
