What version are you running?
ReviewBoard-2.0.6, RBTool-0.6.2

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

What steps will reproduce the problem?
1. Post a review with same versions: rbt post file1.c@@/main/2:file1.c@@/main/2
2. rbt post throws error (see snapshot at the end)

What is the expected output? What do you see instead?
Review should be posted with empty diff. I understand that it does not make sense to explicitly post reviews with same versions. But there would be cases when: 1. Posting a diff with labels and both labels are on same version of the file 2. Posting a diff from a branch (brtype option) and the branch has only version 0 so empty diff.

What operating system are you using? What browser?
ReviewBoard server is on RHEL 6.5
RBT is on RHEL 6.5

Please provide any additional information below.
Looks like the server is unable to parse the diff file (which probably would be empty as the versions are same)
