it is set to "poweruser" :) means 300. Retry what? I set it to 0 and
"showed log" again, but the revision doesn't appear. Only when I press

A strange thing happens here. It looks like it is something
"timing/timeout" related. FYI, the log cache is still in HEAD Timeout 0

First try, fire up the repo browser:
The revision is not visible for "/branches/branch-x", but in every level
above. So it is visible for "/" and "/branches".

Then "quickly" after having shown the log for "/" in the repo browser:
Show log in repobrowser for "/branches/branch-x" -> revision not there
Showed log in working copy -> revision not there

A "few" seconds later:
Show log in repobrowser for "/" -> revision there
Show log in repobrowser for "/branches/branch-x" -> revision *there*
Showed log in working copy -> revision *there*

I can't tell if the second "show log" in the repo browser root triggered
some event or if it just needed a few (15-20) seconds to consolidate and
save the data, and the revision was available from now on...

Yes it shows all revisions, but it also looks like the graph fetches all
revisions before it paints itself.

Cache is repaired afterwards, like after update in the settings dialog
(same size, I didn't compare the files).

I still have the cache backup file, so I can play around with it a bit
more, but now I'm off -> home.

Thanks for your help.
