Easy "Forward History"

While testing SVN i figured out a problem in retrieving a "forward history" for a file.
Assume I have a /tag/base_1_0 "delivery" for a base software.
Now, this base_1_0 is used in several (hundreds) of projects by copying the /tag/base_1_0 into some /branch/customer1/product and so on... After a while, some serious error is found in a file /tag/base_1_0/file.c.
Now the action is, to find out the customer projects /branch/xxx/xxx where this file is used.
How can I easily find the locations where this file is used? As far as I know, /tag/base_1_0/file.c do not know anything about its successors.

The tortoise client provides a way by retrieving the complete repository history. But then, I see all "copy" actions as well. I am only interested in the file history. (more or less like CVS or CC, and based on the file change a "link" where this file revision is located.

Are there any other ways? Is there some "script", or on the other way, can there be a "process" of working to solve the problem
