  1. Opened a solution in a forked repo jcansdale/PullRequestSandbox.
  2. Selected a PR in list of PRs from parent repo
  3. Opened a PR file (diff view appeared)
  4. Tried to add inline comment to file
  5. When I clicked Comment button Not Found appeared


It looks like it's trying to publish the comment to a PR on the forked repo.

Post comments to correct repo when on a fork.
If the user had a forked repo checked out and was viewing the parent repo's PRs, posting a comment was erroneously trying to post the comment to the _fork_ repo, resulting in a "Not Found" exception.

Fixes #1195.
