In a prior installation (might be 4.2.2 or 3.8, don't remember) the git commit dialog displayed a diff section inside the dialog box itself (it also had three columns in the bottom section for the not added, staged and unstaged files if I recall). You could click a file and the diff part of the dialog box would automatically display the diff for the selected file. But in my current install (Eclipse 4.2.2, EGit 126.96.36.199302201838-r) the commit dialog only displays a single file listbox and no diff.
What can I do to get that commit dialog box with the included diff?

I'm on a 3.0 nightly from April 24th. I also expected that space would
toggle the checkbox, but it consistently opens a diff viewer (in a new
window) for the currently selected file in the tree viewer.
Maybe only works on Linux due to native keybindings of the Win32 Tree
