Please read carefully what I wrote:

If I update a file in a range where the old file exists (100-200) I would
expect a log history on this old file (and why not on the new file)
but I got the history on the new file ONLY...as if the old file did not
exists. This is not consistent with the (old) local file I have in my

I don't know exactly what svn command are sent by TSVN, but there is no
svn copy to do for running the bug.

That's expected. The new file didn't have any history before rev 300.

No, show log on the parent directory shows all the history for that
directory, which includes the history of the old file and the new file.

If the new file does actually have history from the old file, then you
could do something like
svn rm my_file
svn cp http://my_repo/some_path/my_file@199 ./my_file
svn ci my_file -m"Replacing history-less file with file copied from rev

but.. sorry I don't know exactly how to do that sort of thing in TSVN.
Maybe the "copy to working copy" in the repo-browser is the feature you
want here (you can view an "old" revision of the repo to get a view of
the old file).
