Found show log issue with rebuild repository.

I found an issue where I can't use show log to query for log entries older
than the repository.. Which can happen if you re-build your repository using
dump and load. Below is the test case that and the result.

1) Dump your repository
2) Create a new repository
3) Load your dumped repository
4) right click> Tortoise SVN > Show Log

** Issue **
On the From date of the query (at the top of the screen) you won't beable to
select or successfully enter a date earlier than the date that you executed
step 2.

In our office we have a 6 month old repository that we just moved to a new
server (using the above process). We can verify that the log entires are in
the new repository using the graph. But when we try to view the log (using
View Log) we can't select a from date older than the date the new server's
repository was brought online.

Possible solution:

Instead of limiting the date range, allow the user to enter any date range
and then gracefully catch errors caused by invalid date ranges... Or heck
just let it blow up :-P....

Thanks
