svn blame -r XXX file
means blame from XXX to HEAD.
Try
svn blame -r1:XXX file
if you want to do the same as you did with TSVN.

Also, the "To" revision means "up to but not including". If you blame a
file from r1 to r5, then only the changes between r1-r2, r2-r3, r3-r4
and r4-r5 are shown. But if the file was added in r5, you won't get a blame.

Message I was trying out blame from the Repository Browser to track some changes.
One of the lines shows it was changed at rev 3320. So I used blame again and
selected 3320 as "to" revision. It said there was no such file for 3320.

 

So I went to command mode and typed svn blame -r 3320 prog.c and that
worked.

 

Is this a bug?

 

I'm using TortoiseSVN version 1.5.7 and svn version 1.5.5 on Windows XP sp3.
