Lets say I just created a branch "NewBranch" on 2010-Jun-011 by copying from
an existing branch "Existing",

If I give revision dates between 2009-Dec-01 and 2010-Jun-17 to the svn log
command and provide the urlto NewBranch, I am seeing even files from
Existing branch listed. What is going on ?

I though it would get the repository revisions corresponding to the dates
and then list out only files from NewBranch that lie between those dates...

Hallo Sasha,
Subversion in general uses an internal copy operation to create branches or tags. The good thing is that a copy operation creates some kind of link between the copy source and desination file (or directory). This is especially helpful for following the history of copied objects - you can follow the history of such an object (file or directory) as if there was no copy in between.

If you do not want to see the history of a file before the copy process you can tell this subversion. Just use

svn log --stop-on-copy

on your branch and you will not see history before the creation of the branch. Using Subversive you can choose this option in the History view. Please refer to the Subversive Users Guide:

Subversive User Guide, TeamSupport with SVN, SVN History View, see "Stop on copy".

Best regards,
