Thank you very much for clearing that up for me. You are right, I do
mainly use TortoiseSVN. That "stop on copy" option is just what I
needed. I had never noticed that check box down the bottom! (or knew
what it meant)

Your history is NOT lost. The fact that the message says "Copied
remotely" means you're probably using TortoiseSVN. Please note that
TortoiseSVN automatically uses the option "stop on copy" when showing
you a log. If you will turn off that option, or display a log from
the command line (where that option is not the default), the log will
not stop at places where you copy.
