I don't see how this could be a bug. It's not possible to do a diff
between a version that doesn't exist and anything else. What do you
expect the output to be? Every line added? The message is, as you
know, 100% correct - foo.c didn't exist in rev. 123, therefore it's
impossible to analyze what changed as compared to a newer revision.
