Branch specification for CVS diff

How does one tell IDEA which revision to compare against when a "Compare with repository" command is issued? I have a checkout on a branch, but it always compares against HEAD.

There used to be a dialog which let me add this information, but it seems to be no longer available.

It would also be nice if it looked at the CVS info in the directory and just use the sticky tag by default.

Anybody home?

Is this a known problem that I just can't find in Tracker?
Is there a workaround?
Is it planned to be fixed?
Does anyone else need to run diffs against a particular
branch or tag?
Should I report this as a bug?

Thanks.

Yes, I have the same problem.
I remember it used to work in previous (922) version.
IDEA guys, any idea?

If oyu can't find it after a reasonable search in the Tracker then
report it. The developer responsible should recognize that it's a dupe
if there is one.
