What version are you running?
site 2.0.15
rbt 0.7.4

What's the URL of the page containing the problem?

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. given a mercurial repository where tip is hash AAAAA
2. make two commits locally with hash BBBBB, and CCCCC
3. rbt post --parent AAAAA
4. open in web ui and look at diff

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
The diff from AAAAA to CCCCC.

What I see is "Didn't apply patch cleanly". Downloading the patch and applying it locally is fine:
cd mercurial-repository
wget -Opatch http://reviews.internal/r/67/diff/raw
hg update -r AAAAA
patch -p1 < patch

Looking at the contents of the patch we see:
diff -r AAAAA -r CCCCC filename

The problem is "-r CCCCC", if we remove it and re-upload the patch it diffs fine. This is a but in rbt where it is adding the "-r CCCCC"

rbt diff --parent AAAAA | perl -pe 's/^(diff -r \w+) -r \w+/\1/g'> patch
upload patch

This means I cannot use rbt post

What operating system are you using? What browser?
Mac OS X
