Log messages in deleted branches

I need to investigate changes to a file that were made in a branch that
has since been deleted (that is, the entire branch has been deleted).
So, I checked out the branch at the revision right before it was
deleted. No problem.

But when I try to view the log message for anything in this branch, I'm
getting a "path not found" error. However, if I type "svn log <file>"
from the command line in the same directory, I get the desired log file.

Typing "svn help log" explains that the default revision range for log
messages is BASE:1, meaning showing the log of everything up to and
including the version where the WC was checked out (in reverse
chronological order). It seems that TSVN doesn't follow this logic, and
always tries to show the log of HEAD:1 instead.

I also don't see a way to instruct TSVN to only get the log of a certain
range. So it seems that using TSVN to inspect the history of a deleted
branch is impossible. Am I missing something here?
