"svn log" doesn't show rev in which item was deleted

Look: "svn log" says a file was modified and then added with nothing in
between. That can't be true.

(I deleted a few irrelevant lines from the above.)

In reality, it was deleted in r14340:

> ~/src/subversion> svn log -vq -r14340
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------
> r14340 | maxb | 2005-04-20 22:35:48 +0100 (Wed, 20 Apr 2005)
> Changed paths:
> D /trunk/www/project_tools.html
> ------------------------------------------------------------------------

It wasn't touched in r14339.

I think there is a bug: "svn log" is failing to show a log entry in which the
file was affected. I realise this is complicated by the lack of support for
peg revision and the question of whether it should be following the ancestry of
the item. I realise also that we can't presently log a deleted file at all
(because we can't give a peg) unless it has been resurrected. Nevertheless
this looks like a bug independent of that deficiency.
