This is due to this code in vc.el:vc-diff-internal

    (if (and (zerop (buffer-size))
             (not (get-buffer-process (current-buffer))))
        ;; Treat this case specially so as not to pop the buffer.
        (progn
          (message "%s" (cdr messages))
          nil)

vc-git-diff does not call the diff command asynchronously (probably
because nobody had a problem with it being synchronous), but vc-bzr-diff
is asynchronous.
