RE: Re: Diff with previous version -> "Unable to find repository location for ..." if file is not in previous rev.

I also found the same behavior in v1.5.4 build 14259 64 bit.

1. Add or import new file
2. Right click on the new file in working copy - select "Diff with previous version"
3. Receive message box with error "Unable to find repository location for '<file name>' in revision <creation revision - 1>".

The command "TortoiseProc /command:diff /path:<file name> /startrev:<creation revision - 1> /endrev:<creation revision>" also replicates this behavior.

I have seen this one with at one other user (my boss!), but that was in v1.5.3.

If you can reproduce this, please tell us. Maybe there's something we can do about that.
