the patch does nowhere contain the word "previous"

What it does say is:
"repeat" can also be used alone, in which case the loglevel is not changed.

This seems fairly clear to me.
Either a option changes the loglevel or it does not.
"-i file.avi" does not change the loglevel and so does "-v repeat" not
change the loglevel

Maybe you could suggest an english text that you find better?
