'svn log', with no arguments, runs the command on the '.' directory at
BASE revision... just like every other svn subcommand. That means
you're asking to see the history of every commit ever made to the
working-dir at revision BASE, then going backwards in time from there.

So, if your working copy is all at revision 8, and then you commit a
change to foo.c, the whole working is *still* at revision 8, and foo.c
is now at revision 9. If you run 'svn log', you're asking for all
commits that happened to r8 of the directory. That means you *won't*
see the r9 commit you just made.

The two workarounds are:

    1. run 'svn log' on a URL instead of '.'

    2. run 'svn up' first.
