This post is mis-aimed. The Subversion developers do not maintain
ViewCVS. The ViewCVS developers do. In the future, please send mails
regarding ViewCVS bugs to viewcvs-dev@lyra.org.

Since you have my ear, though, I'll answer your questions.

This isn't an off-by-one bug. ViewCVS's "log" view is written to show
only changes made directly to the file or directory whose history you
are browsing, not their children (if any exist). The only reason you
see r13351 in that listing is that the directory had property
modifications (svk:merge) in that revision (which is revealed by
clicking the "13351" link and checkout out the "revision" view.

It's a server-side configuration, not exposed through the UI.

Nope.
