I agree, but only for files. I disagree, for directories. On a directory,
the ONLY interesting change on a double-click, is the properties. Right
now, a double click on a directory from the "compare revisions" or "check
for modifications" or the log always does NOTHING AT ALL which is useless.

Is it too difficult to treat files and directories differently here? I
think the best case would be to show property differences when double
clicking a directory in the "Changed files" dialog, because there is
nothing else to show. Files can continue showing only the file diff.

A more general solution I'd also support, is any "properties only" change
would show the property diff on a double-click.

The current behavior, doing nothing at all, is not useful in any scenario I
can think of, and only causes confusion why the dialog is not responding to
my input.
