It would be relatively straightforward to find if there was a Log option to only show changes to the selected directory and not subdirectories -- especially if the directory that still exists only contains other directories and not files.

It's been asked for before but IIRC it's a limitation of the SVN library, so it probably needs to be a feature request over on that side.
