While not exactly what you would expect, it's actually correct.
TMerge and the underlying diffing engine does not recognize
swaps/exchanges but only adds and removes.

What you see is that on the left side, the word "tree" is missing before
"dead", indicated by the red vertical line. Then the word "dead" is
unchanged, and after "dead" the word "tree" is being removed.
On the right side, the word "dead" is missing before "tree", and the
word "dead" is added after "tree".
