Anytime you run 'svn log WCPATH', that gets translated under-the-hood into
'svn log -rBASE url-of-WCPATH'. So the state of your working copy (as
far as what revision of the target you have) definitely does play a
role in how 'svn log' works.

Log is always recursive. I wonder what distinctions you were seeing
between the WCPATH and URL versions of the commandline... ?
