Trying to view the second and third revision of the page history works file.

Trying to view the first revision results in an MWException with blank internal error page:

It also seems like there is only a page history, no file history.

Viewing the first revision no longer causes a php fatal error. Instead, it renders the page without fatal error, but the content area is confusingly missing, without an error message of any kind.

The is at url https://commons.wikimedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special:Undelete&target=File%3AWikimedia-servers-2004-11-13.png&timestamp=20041116181336.

Perusing the logs showed an instance of T203075 instead. Better than fatal :)
