That's the expected behavior and most likely won't change in the future.

When you change the state of a checkbox in the log dialog, it will
re-fetch the log messages again. But of course only those which are
already shown in the dialog.
Once you stoped-on-copy, you only show the log messages up to that
revision. If you then deactivate the stop-on-copy again, the log
dialog will fetch the log messages again which are already shown. You
have to use the button "get next 100" (or some other means) to get
more log messages.
