Bug in Compare Revisions?

From: Patrick Ryan <tigris_at_pryan.org>

I have encountered a scenario where compare revisions fails.

- Add a file to an existing working copy.
- Commit.
- Rename the file using the TortoiseSVN rename function.
- Commit.
- Go to Show Log and try to compare revisions for the old and new names.

If you want, edit it after renaming it, but the results will be the same
if comparison is attempted between the modified version and the version
before the rename.

Expected Result: the files are compared.

Actual Result: a dialog with "Failed to fetch lock information: 404 Not
Found (<url>)".

The reason seems simple enough: the change in path and name was not
taken into account when fetching the files for comparison.
