The base isn't really changed, because it can't be saved.
The problem is that if we don't remove the lines, the user will get
confused: when editing a text file and you remove a line, you expect it
to actually get removed and not just stay there as an empty (but marked
removed) line. And since we're removing the line on the right view, we
*must* remove it also on the left view, otherwise the diff becomes
out-of-sync (line-wise).

Fixed in r12335.

Can't reproduce that. If I choose "use both (this first)" or "use both
(this last)" the line numbers are still correct.
Are you using the latest version? Does it happen with all your files or
just a special one?

Improved in r12336.
