Comment #3 on issue 1281 by kyle.getz: Adding comments in diff viewer can delete or overwrite existing comments.

I don't think the line numbers need to go into the thousands for this to be
triggered.  On the contrary, I perceive the problem as being more related to
horizontal length, rather than vertical length. When viewing a diff, the comment bubbles are at the very left of the page and the line numbers for new/updated code are in the middle of the page. I use a 20" widescreen monitor, so when viewing a diff (which expands horizontally to fill the screen), there's a decent amount of physical space (at least 9 inches) between the comment bubbles and the line numbers, so it's easy to miss the correlation and inadvertently erase a comment with no
warning from Review Board.
