"Checking forward copies" is used by the revision graph as a progress
information. While this message is shown, the whole bunch of log
messages is searched forward and backwards for 'forward copies'. A
forward copy would be something like this:
/trunk/file1.txt: (copied to: /tags/v1/file1.txt:rev300)
Since Subversion stores only backward copies (copied from), this search
can take a long time. Therefore the progress message.
