Description of problem:
If you bring up a file in the cvs resource window _without_ first opening the
file, and then compare two versions, then Eclipse will complain and the compare
will fail (an error dialog followed by an empty view).
I found that it sometimes works when you open the file first.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Connect to a cvs server, and bring up a file's resource history
2.Select two versions of the file
3.Right mouse click to compare them.
Expected Results: A nice visual diff.
This might be related to this eclipse PR:
This was closed in 2.1.1.
I'll investigate importing 2.1.1 before RC.
I was able to reproduce this with a gcj-compiled 2.1.1.
So upgrading won't help.
I've checked in a fix for this.
