Sorry I'm replying here on the wrong leaf of the thread (forgot to
register to the mailing list).

I just tried to enable the setting mentioned in the other thread
(LogFindCopyFrom) but it didn't make a difference to me. Already merged
revisions from the original branch are correctly grayed out, but the log
still displays the revisions before the branch was created as

This was tested using TSVN 1.9.1.
I also tried clearing the TSVN cache before doing the test (without
making any difference).
Am I doing something wrong here?

Also I don't fully get ur statement about "[...] a new svn API was
available to get the merged rev info.[...]". Are u suggesting you are
making use of the new SVN API which would the make that old
LogFindCopyFrom setting obsolete and therefore it seems like there's
some bug in SVN with that API? Or are you suggesting that the new API is
available but there's nothing in TSVN's front end for the user to set a
newly available parameter for that SVN API (yet)? Or did I simply
overlook some new GUI setting?
