Ah, yes. Look at svn_wc_process_committed:

1. it opens a logfile
2. it calls svn_wc__entry_modify with SVN_WC__ENTRY_MODIFY_REVISION to
   immediately change the revision
3. it writes various things to the log file
4. it closes and runs the log file

Nasty things happen if 3 gets interrupted. Obviously the call to
svn_wc__entry_modify needs to be made loggy.
