That's a good idea, but a little too early. You see, when Subversion 1.2
comes out, it will have a new svn_client_log2() function which takes a
new param 'number of log messages to retreive'. Then we can add a button
like "get 100 messages more".
And that's when the log dialog get's a major rework, but not now - I
would have to change all over again in a few weeks.

Yes, unchecked by default. Only checked by default when you start the
log from the merge dialog (that's where you have to find the branch
start and can make good use of that option).

Thanks for noticing. Fixed in revision 2415.
