Let me explain how the log history works:
- every time you write a log message and commit or cancel the commit
dialog, it is stored in the registry (HKCU, so only *you* have access to
them).
- To separate your different working copies, we check the UUID of the
working copy and use that to store the log messages in a UUID subkey.

In the repository browser, you don't have a working copy, you're working
directly on the repository itself. Sure, we could ask the repository
itself for its UUID and then use that to find the old stored messages,
but that would require yet another round trip to the repo, and you might
not even have messages stored for that UUID/Repository.
