Had the same experience recently, I'd suggest just making left muse
button "grab" the page and let all areas (upto 3 files (merging) and the
compare) follow the mouse movements (and maybe even the scroll whell).
This would also easy scrolling for people without scroll wheels.

Another idea is to embedd info about simple changes in the texts itself.
The xxdiff *nix tool (http://furius.ca/xxdiff/) does this quite
elegantly, but it's inadequate for larger changes. See an example from
TSVN here http://mikini.dk/misc/xxdiff%20shot.png, notice that
added/removed text is visible (small vertical bar) in both the old and
new rev.
