Yes. The reason is that paths shown in the bottom pane don't have a
working copy path associated with them (at least, they *don't have to*
have one).

Also, just try to create a function which finds out the wc path of an
item selected in the bottom pane in pseudocode - you will know
immediately why I don't implement it ;)

A hint if you want to try it in pseudocode:

Use this example:
file selected to show the log: d:\test\wc\folder\file1
that file has the URL in the repository : .../svn/project/trunk/folder/file1
the item selected in the bottom pane has the relative URL :

good luck ;)
