It really tries to fetch the log from the correct location, but the
wrong revision :)

Fixed in revision 6926.

Sorry, no. The 'original sort' is not sorted at all. So there's no way
to go back to that 'sort'.

Fixed in revision 6928.

That's because only the "Completed" lines always have a full path
assigned to them. Ok, updating a working copy also writes the full paths
in the path column, but e.g. a commit doesn't. And without a full path,
there's no way to open the parent folder because we don't know where
that might be.

I've enabled the menu entry for all entries with full paths in revision

AFAIK, there's no official way to open the explorer and select a file.
And I won't implement some kind of hack to do that.

Done in revision 6930.

What exactly do you want to drag from that dialog? And dropping
something on it would do what exactly?
Sorry, I don't see the point here.

You would get that if the two selected folders you updated are from
different repositories. Because then, TSVN has to update each selected
path individually, and it writes exactly that before updating it.
But if they're from the same repository, TSVN just passes the list of
paths to update to the Subversion library, and it's that library that
doesn't tell us about which entry it just updated.

Next time, please, please, please: write a separate mail for each issue
you have. It's a real pain in the ass to answer such mails with multiple
issues in it. And it's even more of a pain to work through such a mail
and fix the issues. If I get a separate mail for each issue, I can go
over issue by issue much easier.
