I'm confused, if I type 'svn log some_directory', then it shows me
every change which has ever affected *any* path within the directory,
at any depth. It's already recursive as you describe.

You say that you can miss a changeset by typing 'svn log
some_directory', what problem are you describing? Is it perhaps the
classic case where some_directory is at an old revision, and thus
you're only seeing commits from OLD_REV down to r0? This bites
newbies a lot; just run 'svn up' to bring everything in your working
copy to HEAD, and then I guarantee that 'svn log some_directory' will
show every commit that ever affected anything within the directory.

Or, are you talking about some other problem?
