Ah, that may be the root of the problem.  I think my code is doing much the 
same thing for two use-cases that probably need to be handled separately: 

1) diffing two branches with working trees available
2) diffing two branches without working trees (remote or repository branches)

Interestingly, this error does not occur in the 2nd case.
