Works for me with the latest (tonight's) Vim 7 (snapshot 0123) on W32, both
with :edit, :vsplit, :edit, :diffthis, ^Ww, :diffthis and with gvim -d.
Using a colorscheme only very slightly different from the default, "diff"
styles not affected.
On the left side (6.3 version of the file) I see lines of blue-on-cyan
dashes for the lines which exist only in the other file (and are marked
black-on-blue on the right). I don't see anything wrong.
