[TSVN] Commit Dialog Usabiliy Issues

From: Nathan Kidd <nathan_at_hummingbird.com>

A few things I noticed about the r2178 nightly's Commit dialog:

1. In 1.1.1 as soon as the commit dialog comes up the previous commit
message history dropdown list is filled, you can select a message, and
start modifying it as needed. All while TSVN is still searching to find
the list of files to show. In the r2178 nightly this dropdown list is
not populated till *after* TSVN has finished searching for all the files
to commit, a process that can take ~20+ seconds on some of the large
trees I'm working on. Could the Commit Dialog be changed back to
populate this list as soon as it starts?

2. If I Commit on a large tree (where it can take 20+ seconds to give
the file list) while it is searching for the list of files to commit the
OK button is enabled (but doesn't do anything when pressed) and the
Cancel button is disabled (greyed out). It seems to me that the OK
button should be *disabled* until the list of files is displayed, and
the Cancel button should be *enabled*, canceling the operation if
pressed. Does this not make sense?

I suppose at least #2, if not both, are post-1.1.2 issues.



P.S. Stefan, many thanks and extra eggnog for you. Your work is
