That makes sense in an environment with different svn clients - with
TSVN only I consider path names in log messages redundant information
in most cases.

Of course - and there's already an issue (#250,
http://tortoisesvn.berlios.de/issues/?do=details&id=250) in the issue

The file name (path? url?) is the most important information, so it
should be first, maybe followed by less important information (tab
separated) so you can easily get rid of it by a to-end-of-line-delete.
The suggestions in issue #250 make sense, although Ctrl-Shift-C should
not copy all visible, but all availabe columns (if I understand the
term correctly and "available" refers to remote columns (Check for
Modifications dialog) that are visible but not filled if there was
no contact to the repository).

Kind regards
