Blaming the file
https://tortoisesvn.googlecode.com/svn/branches/1.6.x/src/TortoiseShell/RemoteCacheLink.cpp

with the latest nightly build returns one merged line:

G 232 15770 15771 18.03.2009 20:42:21
/trunk/src/TortoiseShell/RemoteCacheLink.cpp tortoisesvn
                                    if
(CreateProcess(sCachePath.GetBuffer(sCachePath.GetLength()+1), NULL,
NULL, NULL, FALSE, 0, 0, 0, &startup, &process)==0)

And there the revs differ.

The same is returned when I run
svn blame -g RemoteCacheLink.cpp > RemoteCacheLink.txt

So what exactly is the problem here?
