Issue 645: handle_renames incorrectly mangles '-->' lines  
for SVN

New issue report by jhartlaub:

1. edit an XML file in SVN containing comments like this:
    remove the comments with an editor.

2. use to post the file.

3. In the resulting review, use the "View Diffs" button.  The server
displays an error.  The error is because the diff posted by the script is corrupt.  The diff is corrupt because the method
"handle_renames" mangles the "-->" string and eliminates it because it is
looking indiscriminately for the string "---" in the diff.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Windows to post, Linux to run server with Firefox.
