To answer that, test the same operation on the command line
svn log my_pathname_at_HEAD -r start_rev:HEAD

Where start_rev is typically 100 short of HEAD if you're using the defaults.

If it's TSVN you should be on their list, if it's SVN stay here. Doing
this sort of test in advance is usually helpful to the bug report - as
well an ensuring you ask on the correct list in the first place.

Reloaded? You mean you created a new repository and loaded a dump of
the test repo into it, or you restarted your server?

If it is the latter, I'm guessing the test repository was disposable and
you deleted it forever. However, if the problem is UUIDs confusing
TSVN's log caching, then it will still be confused, TSVN doesn't know
you've deleted the repos! Try settings->saved_data then click to clear
"log message (show log dialog)"
