Precise meaning of 'unrelated changed paths'

Hi all,

I'm not sure if there's a bug in the log dialog, or some misunderstanding
on my part.

If I
svn copy directory1 to directory2, make some file changes and commit.
svn copy directory2 to directory3, make some file changes and commit.

Then look at the log in directory 3 should the changes made in the first
commit be 'unrelated'?

The way I've always looked at it is that if they were made sometime in the
history of the file
before it was copied into the current path there's no reason for them to be

The reason I ask is that after importing three consecutive vendor revisions
of a library, I tried
to view the log from the directory of the latest tag. When I select
anything other than the latest
commit revision the file differences are grayed out and double clicking on
one produces
'Unable to find repository location for xxx in revision 4556'

I presume the files are grayed out because they are classified as

Now admittedly I didn't do the imports in the same way as described in the
svn book for
vendor trees (I wasn't thinking about it so I didn't create a current
directory. Instead I
copied to the new tag name - within my WC - then copied in the new versions
of the files
before committing.)

Regardless of that I would have thought attempting to show a file's
differences would either
show the differences made in that revision regardless of the paths involved
or provide an
error message explaining why that's not possible.

It looks to me like tortoise is using the wrong path to try and show the
diffs, but I welcome
another explanation?

I've attached a screen shot and the output of svn log to show what I'm
talking about.
