No. BASE is a special revision that corresponds with the state of the
file as it was last updated from the repository or committed in the
working copy.

Well, if you do a client-side log, it logs from the revision the path
exists in the local working copy. I bet if you ran "svn info", you'd
see 100 instead of 106. Run "svn up" first, then "svn log" and you
should get everything.

Take care,
