Idea X Diff from Commit Changes dialog bug

When committing files through the Commit Changes dialog, double clicking dirty files or right clicking and choosing Show Diff shows the diff dialog, but it is incorrect.  It claims to have the previous version of the file on the left, and your version on the right, but its actually displaying your version on both sides, making it look like there are no changes.  Misleading and dangerous!!!

Hello Alex,

Which VCS are you using?

CVS.  I should mention that invoking the Compare with Same/Latest Repository Versions dialog through other means compares the two files correctly.
