TortoiseSVN caches the log information locally, so if you "show log" for a repository the first time, it fetches the newest nnn log messages from the server and afterwards loads them from the cache. The number of log messages fetched initially can be configured in "TortoiseSVN->Settings->Dialogs 1->Show Number of log messages". So if you want to avoid the slowdown in the first "show log" action, you can set this to some value smaller than the current revision number, but I wouldn't recommend it, since it's only a one time penalty. To my knowledge there is no hidden switch to prevent the list of changed files from being fetched together with the log message. We want to offer a diff option after all, so we have to know which files are affected.
