> (1) The Help file describes registry entry HKCU\Software\TortoiseSVN\RecursiveLogRev in two places. In 4.30.10 Registry Settings, the description is accurate. In 4.9.5. Current Working Copy Revision, the description wrongly says the default is not to recurse.

I dispute that; I don't think my description in 4.30.10 is accurate either ;-)

There is says that in order to enable the feature you have to define a
registry key, but in the next sentence it says that the default value
is 1, which implies that you don't need to define the key to enable
the feature. It looks as if the key is used to restrict or turn off
the feature rather than turn it on. Stefan, can you clarify this

> (2) If I set RecursiveLogRev to 2 (because I have a large working copy), I don't always see any revision highlighted for a folder. It seems that this happens where the log messages for my working copy do not include the exact revision to which it was updated: for example, for a branch after a later commit has been made to the trunk. Right-click folder, TortoiseSVN > Show Log. I see this at present, for example, in a working copy of http://svn.collab.net/repos/svn/branches/1.6.x -- and the behaviour is different for show log of a file.
