"If a clef changes within a measure and the same note occurs before and after 
the clef change, the accidental must be repeated."

However were this f an octave higher I'd say no natural (cancellation) is 
needed. So is this pitch being judged as higher just because it is 'higher' in 
the staff or is it really an octave higher? Otherwise it ought to have a 
natural by default. 

That's my rather on the fence take :)
