If you use the log dialog and start another log dialog from that, it's
usually because you *want* to show the log for a specific revision -
maybe the file/folder doesn't even exist anymore in HEAD. So we can not
show the full log because we would get an error if the file/folder
doesn't exist anymore in HEAD.

The date controls work as a *filter* for already shown log entries.

That's all by design. I explained why above...

Could be done, yes. I'll keep a note...
