(4) and (5) should certainly have the same result - no question about that.
I've changed (5) to have the same result as (4).
Fixed in revision 9182 and merged into 1.4.x in revision 9183

If you "compare revisions" in (3) it is correct that you get a different
result compared to "show differences" in (4) or (5). The reason is
that "compare revisions" shows the diff *between* two points in time
and "show differences" actually shows the differences which have been made
*in* those selected revisions. That is why in the latter case the previous
revision is taken when creating the diff.
