We have 1.7.6 in production on a linux server. I posted a review of a php
file with whitespace-only diffs on one line. When I view it on reviewboard
it won't show me the diff. With these settings:
+ Expand Changes + Show Whitespace changes
I see the message:
"This file contains only whitespace changes."
That makes sense. When I click on the 'Show Whitespace changes' box, I
still don't see any diff.
I posted the same exact review to my 1.6 sandbox, and there it behaves the
way I would expect, namely when I click on the "Show Whitespace changes", I
see my 1 line diff.
This is a serious problem because those whitespace differences are not
leading/trailing spaces and they're significant to the change under review.
I compared my site settings for the diff viewer, I don't see anything that
jumps out at me. Maybe something will jump out at you:
# 1.6 server that behaves the way I want
# 1.7.6 server that does not behave the way I want
I don't know why the last setting is 0 for 1.6 and None for 1.7. They seem
logically the same and not related to whitespace, but I obviously don't
know that for sure. The 1.7.6 database was migrated from a 1.5 server so
maybe that's why. The 1.6 sandbox was created from scratch.
Is this a bug, or do I have something misconfigured?
