FW: [TSVN] Bug report: compare revisions in repository browser

I was hoping for some response to my question about the new Changed
Files window
and to what appears to be one or more bugs in the latest version.

Thanks,
Chuck

1. What is the purpose of the new Changed Files window and where is
it documented?

2. I believe there are bugs in it described below relating to
Compare revisions
        in the Show Log dialog after invoking it from the Repository
Browser
        (but this works when invoke Show Log directly from Windows
explorer).

I'm also having problems (bugs?) with this new feature in version 1.2.1.

I am trying to see what changes were made on a branch as I merge it onto
the trunk.

I didn't check out the branch - because I don't want to build it or
change it, just merge it. Therefore, I was using the repository browser
to find the branch and then start the log viewer.

I right clicked on the file in question, CFDesign.aspx, in the
repository browser and chose show log. I selected two revisions - the
initial revision and the first changed revision. Instead of just showing
the diff as I expected, I saw the new Changed files dialog.

What is this new changed files dialog? Where is it documented?
I can already see what files have changed in the log dialog; so, what's
the point?

The changed file dialog listed this one file, and the path is incorrect:
http://source/svn/repos/branches/Crane/CFDevTables/Development/Projects/
Crane/WEB/Crane.Pharmacy.Web/CFDesign.aspx/CFDesign.aspx

I still wasn't sure how to show the differences between the two
revisions.
I tried right clicking and double clicking and each attempt to show the
differences failed.

I backed out to version 1.2.0 of TortoiseSVN and tried the same thing.
Then, it just shows "CFDesign.aspx" - which may be correct (it's not
obviously incorrect).

When I logged onto a machine where the branch was checked out, and used
show log directly, then comparing two revisions in the log dialog worked
fine.

Chuck

p.s. I'd like to make a suggestion for the show log dialog.
        Perhaps the filter should initially show the repository path
        of what you clicked on when you selected show log.
