The default number of log messages fetched initially is defined in the
settings dialog on the first tab. The default is 100.
The problem TSVN faces here is that Subversion doesn't provide a method
to fetch 100 log messages, but only a revision range. If for example a
file wasn't changed in the last 100 revisions, then TSVN has to fetch
another 100 revision which requires another round trip to the server.
But if at least one log message was found, it doesn't do another round
trip but let's the user decide to fetch more messages with the get all

There's been a discussion on the subversion mailing list about having a
function which actually fetches a number of log messages, not just a
revision range. But so far, this function is still missing.
