This hasn't worked for me for some time, nor has `C-c C-a' in the
*VC-Log* buffer (though it used to work).  I just tried again: I edited
lisp/calendar/todo-mode.el, wrote a ChangeLog entry with `C-x 4 a',
typed `C-x v d' to get the VC-Dired buffer, typed v, got a *VC-Log*
buffer with no ChangeLog entry, typed `C-c C-a', the *VC-Log* buffer
remained empty.  Same thing after saving the ChangeLog buffer and
repeated the preceding steps.  Same thing when running VC-dired in the
Emacs source tree root.  Same thing with emacs -Q.  What am I doing
