emacs -Q


say the above display 2 files a and b

put the cursor on a and do:

C-x v l

put the cursor on b and

switch to the *vc-change-log* buffer.

press d in that buffer

it will show a diff for the file "b", not "a" (or it will give an error
that the diff is not found).

log-view-diff calls vc-version-diff, which calls vc-diff-internal not
using it's arguments, but by calling `vc-deduce-fileset'.  That will
trigger this code in vc-deduce-fileset:

     ((and (buffer-live-p vc-parent-buffer)
           (or (buffer-file-name vc-parent-buffer)
                          (derived-mode-p 'vc-dir-mode))))

but the selected file in the vc-dir buffer has changed, and this will
return the new selected file, while log-view actually wants the old one.

One way to fix this is to make log-view-diff not call vc-version-diff,
but vc-diff-internal, like so:
