Say we have a file named foo.cpp that has 3 commit revisions (In other
words, I committed the file 3 times and each commit resulted in the
corresponding revision number): 10 29 48

When I do an update that gives me foo.cpp at revision 48, are you saying
that it will diff the changes between 29 and 48 in the top-left pane? If
this is so, why am I seeing changes that should only be showing up when I
diff between 10 & 29?
