Hey Sandy,

Couple questions. First, is "git-svn/branches/post-1.0-research" the name of
the actual branch in git?

The filename in that path definitely seems screwed up. It shows the filename
as the parent directory of itself. So maybe there's some processing that's
broken there.

That parent diff is generated by running:

git diff --no-color --no-prefix -r -u master..<yourparentbranch>

Does this look correct? If so, it's our processing. Would you mind sending
us the diff for that file (as an attachment) using the above, if you can
still get it?
