Comment #14 on issue 394 by msbcode: if a diff includes a file that has been cvs remove'd, reviewboard won't accept it

As mentioned above I seem to be having this same issue with ReviewBoard 1.0.8 and a CVS project.

Please let me know if I should file this as a separate issue.

Attached is the output from running post-review with the --output-diff switch. Note I've edited out the empty output from CVS like "cvs diff: Diffing web/css" for directories in which there were no change. The diff should show that I removed one file ( and edited two others.

The output from attempting to upload this change to reviewboard with post-review is:

HTTP POSTing to http://localhost/reviewboard/api/json/reviewrequests/new/: {'repository_path': 'cvshost:/cvsroot/gotoaudio'}
Review request created
Attempting to set field 'summary' to 'g2atest 2' for review request '32'

Error uploading diff

Your review request still exists, but the diff is not attached.

Is there any other data I could supply which would be useful to help troubleshoot this?
