I'm not 100% sure what causes it, but sometimes when clicking "Blame" on a source code file will open a blame view with no text at all.

A workaround seems to be to close the file and reopen it. Once reopened, I can click "Blame" and the blame view will contain the commit info.

Looks like it might have to do with the file having been edited? Even if you undo all your edits...

Fixed by bumping the ngit revision.
