Viewing a old versions of a Deleted File from the log window

I think I might have found a bug here, so hopefully you can point me in
the right direction. I've deleted a file from my repository and now need
to get the history and a previous version of it. However it seems not to
be possible to get open the item when it right clicking on a revision
for the file in the log.


Steps to Reproduce what's going wrong

1. Deleted a file from the HEAD of my repository and it is no
longer viewable in the repo browser.
2. Show log for the parent directory of the file that's just been
deleted. The most recent log entry says the file has been deleted.
3. Selected Deleted file in bottom 1/3 of the screen. Right click
and go to "Show Log". Gives you individual log for that file. Excluding
the last entry where the file was deleted.
4. Choose a revision and right click then open. I get a popup box
saying "REPORT request failed on
'/svn/Edina_development/..../filename.txt path not found'.


I would expect the old version to be returned. This functionality should
work as selecting two revisions and going to "compare revisions" opens
them correctly in TortoiseMerge.


Anyone else discovered this to be a problem?
