That is not a bug, it's by design. Show log gets the information
directly from the repository so you can see commits which have been
made since you last updated. You will find the subversion command line
client behaves the same way.

The button you want is the one at the bottom left 'Show All / Show
Range'. Use the arrow to select which button type you want displayed.

I don't see any problem making it appear again. Just click on a later
date at or before the last commit date.

However, you are right that the date controls are not the easiest to
use. They may have been improved for the upcoming 1.5 release, but I
only have 1.4.5 here in work. In case they haven't, the specific
problem I have is that the controls do not respond to dates outside
the range of commit dates available in the log. So if you pick an
earlier date to hide new revisions, you have to know the date of the
newest revision to get it back, or use trial and error. Better
behaviour would be that you are allowed to use a later date, but the
control silently sets it back to the date of the last commit. The same
logic applies to earlier dates.
