Foo Version 5 was being developed, then stopped while new features and bug fixes for Foo Version 6 were added. I now want to create a branch for Foo Version 5 off a revision before Foo Version 6 feature commits were made, so I can merge just the bug fixes. When I create the FooV5 branch and bring up the revision log for Foo from the merge dialog, it shows no revisions unless I uncheck stop on copy/rename. When I uncheck, all revisions are grayed out as if they were merged, even though they have not been. I can select a revision and merge it, and all works as it should, but all revisions before the FooV5 branch commit are considered merged. Revisions after the branch are not grayed out.

With TSVN, you have to specify the revisions-to-merge not just as "5"
but as "5_at_5" - much the same as with the CL client where you specify the
peg revision in the URL.

You need the peg revision because the branch was not created from HEAD,
so the default peg revision HEAD won't work here.
