Hi!,

Please, see the log below. The newer revision r333117 is older (1999) than the its ancestor r333113 (2005).

I guess that someone imported an older CVS repository in the 2005 year by using the cvs2svn tool, hence the r333117 date comes from the original CVS repo .

Should it be considered as a bug or as an acceptable strange use case?

I'm developing a Subversion based product and I would like to know the official answer. 

Thanks,
Pablo.
