Should be fixed for most cases in revision 7684.

I can't reproduce this. Here's what I've tried:
* create folder 'fold', commit (rev1)
* add file 'file' inside 'fold', commit (rev2)
* modify 'file', commit (rev3)
* rename 'fold' to 'fold2', commit (rev4)
* modify 'file', commit (rev5)
* show log on 'fold2', choose rev5 and rev3, choose "compare revisions"

Even if I select rev5 and rev2 I don't get an error from the changed
files dialog when I doubleclick on 'file' to diff it.

So, can you give me some more information or a reproduction recipe?
