The reason I posted this as a bug is that C requires a line ending after the last closing brace. Since most source editors are simple text editors line notepad, they don't force this behaviour.
In the current situation tortoisemerge does not show an empty (numbered) line after the return, and thus I might think there's a bug in my source code if the line below the last closing '}' isn't numbered.

By the way, text without line endings are also treated as lines by tortoisemerge: if I delete the last return after '}', tortoisemerge still shows a line with '}'.

You say tortoisemerge is not a text editor. Given the (text) nature of source files, maybe tortoisemerge should be just that, to be consistent with the rest of the development environment.
