git blame --reverse doesn't find line in HEAD




I have a repo that reproduces a behavior with `git blame --reverse`
that surprises me. https://github.com/nicksnyder/git-blame-bug

The readme explains the observed behavior and what I expected to
happen. I will inline the readme at the bottom of this message for
convenience.

Am I misunderstanding --reverse or is this a bug?

Thanks!
Nick

Blame of L465 in Tree.tsx at HEAD (ca0fb5) points to L463 at 199ee7

$ git blame -p -L465,465 Tree.tsx

EXPECTED: Reverse blame of L463 at 199ee7 points to L465 at the
lastest commit in the repo (at least ca0fb5).
ACTUAL: Reverse blame of L463 at 199ee7 points to L463 at 199ee7.

$ git blame -p -L463,463 --reverse 199ee7.. Tree.tsx

The line in question is in the diff (git diff 199ee7..ca0fb5), but
that particular line is neither added nor deleted, so I don't know why
blame would think it is deleted.
