New issue 3031 by post-review tries to diff between the commited branch and master

*** For customer support, please post to

What version are you running?
RBTools 0.3.4

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. have a repo with a master branch with some commits
2. add a new empty branch
3. add a commit to the new branch
4. post-review -p --server=http://reviewboard --guess-summary --guess-description --revision-range=$oldrev:$newrev --debug

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
I expect post-review to only diff between the two relevant revisions. for some reason, part of what it does is this:
remote: >>> git merge-base master refs/heads/master
remote: >>> git branch -r --contains b41c522c1247254d7b5dc4fc24d25f9de50ad104 remote: >>> git diff --no-color --full-index --no-ext-diff 4d8fefd7d12d3009e58a645c2af41cd2e962fcd2..b41c522c1247254d7b5dc4fc24d25f9de50ad104 the 4d8fe commit is my master branch, for some reason post-review tries to diff it with b41c52, which is the branch i commited. the two branches have nothing in common, so it takes a long time for the diff to run.

i tried playing with the --parent and --tracking-branch options.. to no avail.
