Ok, now you've mentioned Work Bench again. So I was wondering what this
was all about and installed it. I'm still trying to recover from the bad

* The commands don't reflect the Subversion terminology (History <->
Log, branch/tag/copy <-> annotate, ...)
* "History..." for my Subversion working copy took 5 minutes! I don't
know what they're doing - and during the whole time, nothing indicated
that it was busy fetching the log message.
* unversioned items are shown in a bright green - really hurts my eyes
* no file/folder icons shown for items in the working copy
* Do I work with Subversion or VSS? There's no "commit" but only
* Not possible to select which files to commit.

And after all this, I still haven't found what you're talking about. The
log dialog doesn't even show the changed files of each revision. So
where do you see branches/tags in the log dialog???

If you can tell me how/where Work Bench shows that information?

What I *think* it does is to fetch the log every time for the repository
root instead of just the asked file/folder. Now this works maybe for
your repositories, but for projects like apache where the repository
root contains *every* project of the apache foundation? Ok, the revision
graph does this too, but you don't use the graph as often as a clean log.
Also, sometimes users don't have read access to the repository root but
only to some subfolders - in that case the log would simply fail.

"History" in workbench is a lot slower than "Show log" in TSVN. So
what's the point?
