Hi Stefan,
But we DO HAVE the revision graph in TortoiseSVN,
it has to fetch the same info from repository.
So what I proposed is possible, of course only for the paths the user
has access to.
But, I modify my proposal:
Have an extra button (or checkbox) in the "Show log" called "Show graph".
So we get the graph info only when we need it.
(sometimes we need it very seriously)
If the user doesnt have access to some paths,
showing the graph could be denied at all (simple solution)
or could be partial with some x symbols for inaccessible paths.

Having the graph and the log separately is although a possible, but
farly not the best solution - for orientation in the log and for context
menu actions on log items.

best regards
Peter Schubert
