I've added that in my TODO, when I have the time... (amongst the
software I use, that's not the only problem I've found and for
which a patch is needed).

FYI, I've done a little test on my Debian machine:

  find /usr/share/doc -name 'changelog*' -exec zgrep \
    --color=always -H '\?\\[0-9]\+' \{\} \;

and guess what... I've found a changelog that was badly generated
(in vim-latexsuite... I've just reported the bug). If "svn log" had
signaled the problem in some form, perhaps the maintainer would
have noticed it.
