Multiple commits for the same change?
Please read the Subversion book and our docs. Subversion is not VSS or
CVS. You don't commit every file separately but *all* files and changes.

Have you tried showing the log for the parent folder of those files? You
can choose "diff" then there too.

Won't do that. The shell extension is kept small, with no
network/repository support at all. To do what you want, we'd have to
contact the repository _just to show the context menu_!!
