What I really want is to be able to "svn log" back to the beginning of repo time

If I run a basic "svn log" command like:

    $ svn log http://eng2/svn/Datallegro/branches/v3.1.4-dev | wc -l
    128

...as you can see, I get a tiny number of lines - but there should be
thousands if svn is going back to the beginning of repository history as
I keep hearing it's supposed to. And we could really use complete history.

I get that same short result whether using an svn 1.1.4 client on CentOS
4.6, or an svn 1.4.4 client on openSUSE 10.3. In both cases, the
clients are talking to an svn 1.1.4 server via WebDAV with FSFS backends
on CentOS 4.6.

I know, 1.1.4 is really old. I doubt my management is going to go for
an upgrade without a really good reason though. Is there much chance
that upgrading the subversion (and 3 repositories) on our server to
1.4.6 would help "svn log" go back to the beginning of time like it
should? Or would it at least fix new commits?

Thanks!
