Sorry.  The server is simply where the diffing happens.  It keeps bandwidth 
usage low
though.  This was a particularly annoying bug which was around forever and it 
used to
generate bug reports all the time.  It probably still will for awhile until a 
lot of people
upgrade.  I tell you in case it helps convince your admins.

Karl Tomlinson and Jacob Burckhardt probably deserve some mention in the NEWS 
for their
work fixing this - I'm sorry I forgot.  I'm cc'ing info-cvs and bug-cvs instead.

Others might be interested in the rest of this discussion too.
