It's even worse than that -- history lists any files that *contain* the
given filename.  For example, if you give a filename of "1", you'll get
every file anywhere in the repository with a "1" somewhere in its name.

The history interface has aways seemed to me to be incredibly
complicated yet useless.  If anyone would like to propose a redesign,
I'm open to suggestions.
