RE: [TSVN] Bug report: compare revisions in repository browser

I'm also having problems (bugs?) with this new feature in version 1.2.1.

I am trying to see what changes were made on a branch as I merge it onto
the trunk.

I didn't check out the branch - because I don't want to build it or
change it,
just merge it. Therefore, I was using the repository browser to find the
branch
and then start the log viewer.

I right clicked on the file in question, CFDesign.aspx, in the
repository browser
and chose show log. I selected two revisions - the initial revision and
the first
changed revision. Instead of just showing the diff as I expected,
I saw the new Changed files dialog.

What is this new changed files dialog? Where is it documented?
I can already see what files have changed in the log dialog; so, what's
the point?

The changed file dialog listed this one file, and the path is incorrect:
http://source/svn/repos/branches/Crane/CFDevTables/Development/Projects/
Crane/WEB/Crane.Pharmacy.Web/CFDesign.aspx/CFDesign.aspx

I still wasn't sure how to show the differences between the two
revisions.
I tried right clicking and double clicking and each attempt to show
the differences failed.

I backed out to version 1.2.0 of TortoiseSVN and tried the same thing.
Then, it just shows "CFDesign.aspx" - which may be correct
(it's not obviously incorrect).

When I logged onto a machine where the branch was checked out,
and used show log directly, then comparing two revisions in the log
dialog worked fine.

p.s. I'd like to make a suggestion for the show log dialog.
        Perhaps the filter should initially show the repository path
        of what you clicked on when you selected show log.
