i think (stress the think part) this might be related to the fact that
svn log doesn't really work correctly at all at the moment (most of
the functionality is disabled, pending optimization of how it works
server side). i'm not sure if it currently defaults to asking for
logs based on the current rev you have, but that seems like reasonable
behavior to expect, so if it doesn't, perhaps it should.

i'm at work at the moment, so i can't check, but last night i ran 'cvs
log' in my apr dir, and the blinking lights on my switch went into
overdrive, so i'd tend to think that it is making a connection back.
