The shapes mean (object means file or folder):
octangle: object deleted or replaced
round rectangle: object added
rectangle: normal object (source or destination of copy operation)

The graph works best if the target (the file or folder you selected to
show the graph) is /trunk, because that's where you usually do
branches/tags from. The algorithm tries to guess copies for
files/folders below /trunk, but that won't work reliably (as mentioned
before: Subversion doesn't provide enough information, so the
RevisionGraph function has to do a lot of guessing).
Usually, it doesn't matter if you show the graph for a file or a folder.
