Can you effect this with the --limit arg to log? I'm not
familiar with the svn_client api, but a quick look shows
svn_client_log2 to have that arg.

A problem I had with viewvc was in annotate mode. Normally
clicking on a revision number 123 brings up the diff for that
file for 122:123. This backtraces when the file was Added in
rev 123 since diff says something like "can't find file in rev
122" instead of behaving like cvs diff -N and diffing against
/dev/null. I think I remember seeing an issue filed for
something similar. Anyone know a workaround for this? Maybe
the new --change option will handle it? I tried diff with the
@rev style paths and got the same thing.

Thanks for the info
