how are we meant to know this from the output of "svnlook help pl" (which I'll show again)

Well naturally. :)

That is my understanding:

I can replicate this error message with svn 1.6.9 on Mac OS X. "svnlook pl -t" works fine,
but "svnlook pl --revprop -t" complains that revision number '-1' is invalid, though I specified
a correct in-progress transaction number.

This pre-commit hook demonstrates the problem:




$SVNLOOK pl --revprop -t "$TXN" "$REPO" 1>&2

exit 1
