"Show log" (and the equivalent Subversion API svn_client_log()) only
shows the log of the path you specify, and all paths below that one.
You're externals are *above* that path, so the log isn't shown.

Also, you can't show the log for externals if they're not from the same
repository, because the revision numbers wouldn't match.
