Problem with tortoise merge dialog

I have a problem with the tortoise merge dialog.
For this I attached a png screenshot.

The problem is that within the "From" area I can choose a revision with the "Show log" button,
but this revision is NOT put into the revision field (of "from area") - its put into the revision field of the "To" area.
In the "From" area the choosen revision number -1 will be placed. This happens also when there is NO such rev number within the active trunk/branch - so it is a VERY BAD idea, which makes the "show log" button nearly useless!

In my opinion the choosen revision should be placed in the "From" area.
And then within the "To" area the "Show log" button should be enabled - so that I could choose from the history log there too. It should be made save that "from.revision < to.revision".

Disabling the "show log" button in the "to" area is a bad idea. (Its only enabled when I enable the url field here too).

Hopefully this can and will be fixed soon, because it confuses all newbees I have teached in the past years.

Btw. I am not on the mailinglist - so please send answers also directly to me.
