Hello there,

using TkCVS 8.1, I found a strange bug when looking at the File Branch Diagram of a file that resides in a SVN repository that was converted from CVS via cvs2svn.

I have uploaded 4 images in a TAR (512kB on http://www.chevreux.org/tmp/tkcvsreport.tar\) to walk you through this report:

1) tkcvs_01_cvs_FileBranchDiagram.jpg shows the File Branch Diagram in CVS repositoryFile Branch Diagram in CVS repository

2) tkcvs_02_svn_FileBranchDiagram.jpg is the same file in the converted SVN repository.

3) tkcvs_03_svn_traceOfFileBranchDiagram.jpg is the trace window showing that TkCVS saw all the other versions in the SVN, but apparently did not draw them.

4) tkcvs_04_svn_DirBranchDiagram.jpg shows another aspect. Looking at the Directory Branch Diagram in the SVN, suddenly the "missing" file versions are there, but the tiny subbranch at the beginning is missing.

This bug is the last thing that holds me back from switching from CVS to SVN as TkCVS is imnsho the only really usable tool for using CVS/SVN :-)

Regards,
Bastien
