Minor enhancements, svp

I've just installed latest nightly (TortoiseSVN 1.3.0, Build 5110 - 32
Bit) and these are some minor issues that are not really that
important. I hope I'm not too late, as usually. In no particular

1. Show Log now has an Actions column with icons. Documentation should
be updated accordingly so you know what kind of icons are there and
their meaning.

2. Show Log. I recall this was asked before, but I have to retry: is
there any way to have the message in the first panel resized? Now it
shows the first <n> characters then ..., and if you make the column
wider, the message don't span. I know I can read the message in the
second pane clicking in each line, but sometimes I want to take
advantage of my 19" screen and look at them at once.

3. Commit window: I really liked the old-good combobox (I don't intend
to discuss this, I agree too much has been said about this matter),
but when I click on the new button I expect to minimize my clicks.
Usually (say >50%) I used the combobox to select the first
(very-last-typed) entry, so I'd expect that when the new dialog is
shown, the first line is selected, so just pressing ENTER I can recall
last message. Also, focus should be in the listbox, so I could use
key-up and down to select message, then ENTER to append it to the
message log.

4. Commit window: open two commit windows (for the same or different
wc, it doesn't matter). Type "A" in the first one, then "B" in the
second one. Wait until the dialog is ready and then cancel the "A"
then cancel "B". Open a new commit window and click in "Recent
messages". Message "A" is lost. I have found this more than twice in
my daily usage and it is frustrating.

5. Show log: It would be a great help for me and my teammates to be
able to select revision range; sometimes we need to review what
happened 1500 rev ago (we do a lot of commits a day). I attach a
pbrushed screenshot of how it could be done - just an idea, no idea of
the effort it could take to implement.

6. Show log: open show log dialog, click and release the first entry.
Then press shift and key-down three times. Result: you'll have the
first 4 entries selected, but panels 2 and 3 are unchanged. If you
click the first one and shift-click the 4rd, panel 2 is cleared and
panel 3 shows a resume of changed files in that 4 revisiones.

7. tsvn:logfilelistenglish. Now that "Paste file names" is in the
context menu, maybe this property is not useful anymore. I mean, if
TSVN is not set in English, you could add two different entries "Paste
file names in English" and "Paste file names in your language". This
way user can choose what to use every time. Of course,
tsvn:logfilelistenglish could be taken as "default option" (a tick in
front of the menu item) or even "mandatory option" (if set, no choice
is given and English is used).

That's all by now. Thank you for your efforts!

Best regards,

Fernando Nájera
