There are no error messages in message boxes or in the grid. The log dialog shows a date range of 2/7/2106 to 12/31/1969 and the grid has no entries. Stop on copy is enabled and checked. None of the checkbox states affect the issue.

I had deleted the log cache for the repo in question, without effect. After deleting them all it started working. I finally managed to reproduce this, but I'm not clear on how. It seems to have something to do with the following (written before I reproduced the issue). I'm attaching my Repositories.dat from during the time that the problem is occurring. I think it is the problem in some way.

I did notice one thing that confused me for quite a while until I figured out what was going on.  Each instance of TortoiseProc.exe seems to maintain a copy of Repositories.dat in memory and then writes it out when the log dialog closes.  This causes odd behavior in certain situations.
1. Clear out the log cache
2. Show log of repo A
3. Show log on repo B and then close the form
4. Close show log of repo A
5. Look at the cached repos in Settings
Repo B will show up as "URL not known."
