linking a diff which says "no difference": this is not possible, null edits are not saved. Problems:

So the "comment edited" link is not smart enough when it can't find the second revision; and either LQT history lies, listing an edit which doesn't exist, or we have some serious issues with partly saved edits which don't turn up in revisions nor logs.

Cf. T26039: History link on replies in thread namespace is rather broken. which is about *reply* history.

LiquidThreads has been replaced by StructuredDiscussions on all Wikimedia production wikis (except one, which will be done soon). It is no longer under active development or maintenance, so I'm re-classifying all open LQT tasks as "Lowest" priority.
