I can't think of a reason why it wouldn't work. If you use "svn log
<URL>" (and if you're using the file:///-based URL to your repository
that should be fine) then you should see the entire log of that part
of the repository. (Log messages relating to other parts of the
repository above the URL you specified will not be shown.)

When you say "the log stops at May 1" do you mean there are no
entries before May 1 or no entries after May 1? If no entries before
May 1, did you on May 1 copy this item, and are you using the --stop-
on-copy option to the svn log command? Some clients such as
TortoiseSVN do so automatically I believe. If you don't want the log
to stop on a copy, don't use the --stop-on-copy option. If no entries
after May 1, then the only way I could imagine that to happen is if
you were in fact running the log operation against a working copy
that had not been updated since May 1, and not on a URL as above.

Have you tried running "svnadmin verify" on the repository to make
sure Subversion at least thinks it's ok?
