OK. What I had failed to understand was that the log was (also?) a property
of the directory, rather than the file checked in. IE "svn log ." seems
to look at the log for the object "." (which includes the logs of
any objects beneath it in the hierarchy), rather than looking at the
logs for "." and the logs for any objects beneath it in the hierarchy
(a subtle difference). "svn diff" does that latter, and thus was showing
all the differences up. I have to say the red book doesn't explain
that distinction particularly clearly. But now I know.
