I have updated the attached test to make the failure scenario a little more
clear to someone that runs this. I also future-proofed it a bit in case the
items it is checking for are eventually merged (in which case the test would
not be valid any more).

It still boils down to the discoverChangedPaths boolean breaks the
functionality. I have traced the source code into svn_client and it all
seems OK to me. There is nothing obvious about this particular parameter
that seems wrong. Maybe the code that calls svn_client_log5 is not properly
setup to handle the additional callbacks for the changed paths? That is all
I can think of.
