We've noticed that on the View Diff page, when viewing subsequent
diffs (not the first diff), sometimes RB chooses the original parent
revision for the left side, and other times chooses the subsequent
diff's parent revision on the left side. E.g., if the original diff
is from A to B, and diff 2 is from B to C, sometimes when viewing diff
2 it shows A to C diffs, sometimes it shows B to C diffs.
Does it always try to show the diff against the original parent and
only not do that when there are missing intermediate changesets, or
when does it choose one versus the other?
We're running RB 1.5.5 on Unbuntu and using Mercurial.
