Incorrect log messages for re-created files?

I am not sure if this _is_ a bug, but at least it does not seem intuitive to me
and maybe one of you can comment this.

I performed the following steps using TortoiseSVN- as
well as using TortoiseSVN-

- create a file and add it to SVN (using "Add..." ), commit,
- then delete the file (SVN delete), again commit,
- re-create a file with the same name, again commit.

Now we have four revisions (say 0, 1, 2, 3) where in the first revision the
file (say "test.txt") did not exist, in the second it did exists, in the third
it is gone and in the fourth it was re-created.

It is interesting that, when I "Update to revision..." number 1, I see the file
I added first (with correct contents from revision 1), but when I select "Show
Log..." on this file, I only see an entry for revision 3!

Did I misinterpret the feature or shouldn't I a history of the file I added
first (i.e. revision 1)?

Many thanks for your comments,
