Hi Stefan
rev 8081

Two problems for you.

 From a log view of a WC that contains changed files invoke the Log View.
Click on a log message near the top of the list (most recent revs at the
top)
Go down to an earlier rev and CTRL+click on another log message.
The selected log messages both appear blue (selected)
Now right CTRL+click on the last one selected (lower one) and chose
"Compare revisions"

The "Changed files" dialog pops up both rev numbers are set to the lower
log message rev, not the numbers of the selected revs.
No changed files are shown of course. An unobservant user however might
miss interpret the outcome.
 
Reverse the order of selecting the log messages, i.e. earlier/later.
Right click on the later rev selected log message and select "Compare
revisions".
Note now that the To/From rev boxes are populated with numbers
corresponding to the selected revs as expected.
The behavior appears inconsistent so perhaps the first example is
unintended behavior.

Now for some trickery.

Click to select a low rev message.
CTRL+click a higher rev message so you now have two revs selected.
While continuing to hold down CTRL right click on another log message,
i.e. neither of the selected messages.
Chose "Compare revisions".
Note that the comparison is between the first selected message and the
last *right* clicked message not the second selected message as one
might expect from the now greyed messages.
This might be a trap for sloppy users who allow the mouse cursor to
drift off the second selection just before they execute CTRL+right click
to invoke the dialog.

Peter
