bad XML in fringe case

Bug Description

I have a fringe case where xmloutput generates illegal XML. When trying to list just a subrevision and a parent of a file, I get XML like:

This is obviously wrong. The last log and merge closing tags should be swapped. It stems from file that has a revision history like

36 <-- merge depth 0
  33.1.14 <-- merge depth 1
        33.4.2 <-- merge depth 3
     33.3.1 < -- merge depth 2
  33.1.17 <-- mrege depth 1
35 <-- merge depth 0

I believe I have a fix, I've attached a patch.

The trouble stems from the end_log code which assumes that it needs to close a log tag for every merge tag it closes.

Thanks for reporting this issue, and attching a patch!

The patch looks reasonable

is there a chance that you could add a test case?

if not, could you detail the steps to reproduce? (command args, etc)
