I couldn't agree more, these index lines are a pain. Happens with
current 1.8.x, 1.9.x and trunk.

I've been looking through the diff code and /somehow/ we get the
contents-changed flag wrong. It doesn't matter if we're using the
internal diff code or an external command, the results are the same; and
it also doesn't matter if it's a wc-to-wc diff, a repo-to-wc diff or a
repo-to-repo diff.

The code is of course a tangled maze of twisty passages.
