In most cases merging uses two identical URLs which are here named "start
URL" and "from URL". If you use the "Show log" button of the "from URL"
the "from revision" as well as the "to revision" are set. There is no need
for the second disabled "Show log" button in this case.

You only need the second "Show log" button if the two URLs are different.
This is only possible if you uncheck "Use 'From:' URL". In this case
the "Show log" button gets enabled.

Although I admit, the user interface is not perfect, I'm not sure how to
make it so simple that it is easily understable, but still supports all
ways of merging. Good ideas are always welcome!
