Subversion is *not* CVS. And the revision graph is completely different
than the graph you see in CVS UI clients.

It doesn't matter for which file you chose to show the revision graph:
it's still required to fetch and analyze the whole log of that
repository (after all: you don't know where the file was copied from -
CVS doesn't know renames/moves/copies at all).

The revision graph is there for information purposes only. You should do
all your tasks from other dialogs.
