Because the file doesn't exist in the revision where it was deleted so there's
nothing for the log to be about. The change for that rev happened in the

Subversion tracks things backwards from a starting point that is either
something that exists or a peg revision where it did exist. You can find where
things were deleted with a 'log -v' of a directory high enough in the repository
to contain the change, then use the previous revision as the peg rev for the
thing you want to log from there back while it existed.
