I played around with my test repository (fsfs via svnserve - all
clients and server 1.6.4), corrupting files in revprops and/or revs to

I can't provoke a connection error when calling the log viewer.

The log dialog pops up normaly and after some flickering shows an
error describing (mostly) what I did to the repository.
