I'm not quite sure what's wrong in the diff case.

I would think that for a diff, we should translate the text-base and
compare that against the working copy. If the working copy has
inconsistent newlines, that may be reflected in the diff, but it
shouldn't cause a translation error.

If the text-base has inconsistent newlines, then our commit code didn't
do its job.
