SVN log-diff crashes if server not available

Repro = SVN checkout, make changes to a file, SVN commit, SVN log. Remove access to the SVN server (mine is accessible only via VPN, so disconnect VPN). Right-click a file, SVN Show Log, press Offline for now (not the default), find the file modification in the path/action list. Then either double-click on the file, or right-click on the file : Show Changes. The result is as follows:
Pressing OK results in another pop-up:
(My sandbox is in C:\_SVN, not C:\Users. Maybe Windows is virtualizing storage for SVN? Maybe a check for server accessibility isn't quite right?)
The workaround is to reconnect to the server (reconnect the VPN in my case), but I was surprised that SVN would crash when offline.
Thanks in advance for your attention. -Dirk
