That sound a reasonable explanation. It's a bug or an undocumented
An average subversion user using snv log expect the full log history
for the file. There should be an easy way to figure out that a previous
version of the file one time was removed and re-added.
Of course this is a corner case, but I think that an source control
management system should not hide changes since one of its scope is to
*show* (and keep track of) the changes between revisions.
