log <wc> vs log <url>

Is there a rationale behind different results for running "svn log" against
a working copy verses the "equivelant" url? I've long been happily using
"svn log ." to find what changes have happened *within* the current
directory and have just twigged that instead of that, it's quite reasonably
showing the changes that happened *to* the current directory.

I was pretty sure that I'd been able to answer the question in the past so
figured that I needed to supply the --recursive option, but this isn't
accepted by the log command. After reading the output of "svn log --help" I
realised that I needed the url version of the command and now I have the
information I wanted.

Having got the information out, I'm still a little confused as to the
reasoning behind the distinction. I would have thought that each should be
as recursive as the other and that the --recursive / --non-recursive (or in
future --depth) option should make the difference.

Will add an enhancment request if people think its sensible,


Rob (starting to ponder whether mixed rev working copies might be part of
the issue...)
