SVN bad behaviour makes what is written in the book wrong.

I'm trying to recovers some files I have deleted.
svn cp --revision should do the work.
Unforrtunately, like many people I found on forums, I encounter a bug in
SVN: it looks for the files in the /current/ revision.
So the tip you give does not work. I had to do a complete co of the old
revision in a temp dir, and then manually copy the files...
I still don't understand why the --revision flag work perfectly for svn
co and svn ls and not for svn cp, but its acutally the case.
svn cp --revision 1042 http://localhost:8090/repos/path/to/file/ .
svn: E160013: '/repos/!svn/bc/1045/path/to/file' path not found
As you can see, I'm asking for rev 1042 and svn looks for 1045 (current)...
