Is there something special about the first and last lines? I would
expect pressing the next difference button should do exactly that - send
me to the next difference. If there are no more differences, the button
should be disabled or at least do nothing. It doesn't make much sense
(to me) for it to jump to some arbitrary point later in the file. I
figured there must be some reason, technical or philosophical, for it do
behave as it does. Do you know if there is a reason?
