Then note that TSVN uses the HEAD revision as the peg revision when show
log is launched in this way. Which "in most cases confuses people less"
(than the command line which uses the BASE rev by default). But in the
case where a w/c is older and the file has been replaced this could
actually be a lot more confusing especially if the replacement had
history from elsewhere. Which reminds me I was trying to think of a
feature request to improve this but I haven't come up with anything
coherent yet...

To get an earlier peg rev, launch "show log" from the repo browser instead.
