It's more of a conceptual misunderstanding. --limit N tells 'svn log' to
display _at most_ N log messages in the given revision range. Adding a
--search option does not change the meaning of --limit; it only filters
the results within the log messages defined bu the path, --limit and
--revision (range) options.
