NoNoNo. I _know_ Get-All != Refresh. That's why I converted the single
Get-All button into a Refresh button plus a Get-All checkbox.

If the Get-All box is checked, Refresh gets _all_ revisions back to 1
(same as current behaviour). If the box is not checked, refresh just
gets the default number. That means I can turn off stop-on-copy and then
re-fetch the last (default=100) revisions instead of having to get them
all. As I mentioned, if I want to look at the log of a renamed file in
the SVN repo I will need several cups of coffee while I wait for Get-All
to complete when I only wanted the last 100.

So are you saying that as of 2411 that box is unchecked by default? What
happens if my WC is just a branch. How does explorer know that the box
should be checked now to avoid history going back down the trunk? But I
am happy having unchecked as the default.

You added a "strict" heading in the doc, but you didn't say what it
means. Also, the line above refers to 2 parameters, and you then list 3
of them.
