Stefan,

Thanks for the quick answer. I'll try to explain my reasoning, though
as a fairly SVN / TSVN User, I could be just plain wrong. If that's
the case, please accept my apologies. Here's how I typically use the
"Check for modifications" dialog...

- I have a checked-out folder containing hundreds of source files, of
which I may have modified say, 4.
- I right-click on the *folder* itself, and select "Check for
modification"
- Again, by default, I have the modifications dialog setup so that
*none* of the options are checked at the bottom.

This gives me a good overview of the (versioned) files in the folder
that I've modified (4 files in the above example).

Now, the reason for the request...

I'm looking at a dialog that contains the 4 modified files. The
actual revisions of those 4 visible files range from "11-13", but at
the bottom of the dialog I see the ranges listed as "2-13". At first,
I was confused by the "2-13" report, then I realized that it was
actually reporting on all the version controlled files in the selected
directory (at least that's what I decided) - even though I wasn't
currently *looking* at all of those files.

It just made sense to me that it should only report on the *filtered*
list I was currently looking at. So, as I change the filters at the
bottom, the reported revisions might change based on the currently
visible files.

Either way, it's not overly important to me, though I think my
suggestion seems more "correct". Again, I could be totally wrong. If
that's the case, feel free to let me know.

Thanks again.

Jeff
