It sounds like the log information in your revisions is empty.

Did people actually enter log messages when committing? If so, were
you able to see them with "svn log" before? How long ago? Was that
before you updated to 1.5?

You could check the files in the revprops directory in the db
directory in your repository directory on the server. Do they have
the log messages in them?
