>>> I commited rev.8043 and added a new file. My coworker modified this and other files and committed rev.8046 and then 8047. Now I update my WC with rev.8048 (44, 45, 48 were changes to other files) and get "Updated (this file)" in black letters. But when I try to "compare with working copy" it doesn't show the changes I got in this moment (8043->8047), but tries to compare with revision 8042, where this file didn't yet exist.

so does that mean, that there will be no useful compare-on-update function in 1.7.x? Almost always I have to go the loop way "show log" -> select revision -> select file -> "show changes"
