Well, the current behaviour is certainly not correct, as a big part is
missing from the diff. In fact, data will be lost if the diff is
applied because the add operation is not there, only the delete one.

After commit, of course, the diff is complete again, showing both delete
and add operations. It's unfortunate that diff doesn't have a rename
mode.
