  • GitLens Version: 9.0.3
  • VSCode Version: 1.29.1
  • OS Version: Mac OS 10.13.6

When clicking on a commit in the File History pane to open a diff:

A diff showing the changes introduced in that commit

A diff of the clicked commit with the following commit in the File History (if I'm not mistaken). When history is non-linear, this can cause "extra" changes to show in the diff, which is confusing.

I created a minimal repo to demsontrate this as well:

To reproduce:

  1. Open the above repo in vscode with gitlens
  2. Open the only file in the repo and go to the GitLens File History pane
  3. Click on commit 3, and note that the diff shows changes to "Line 1" and "Line 3", when only "Line 3" was actually changed in that commit.

Is this expected behavior?
Thanks for all the hard work on this extension!
