No sf.net account, I like meld.sf.net though, clean & simple...

I would love to get rid of the dialog for "no match found"
I'd prefer something along the line of firefox search bar:
text entry become red if no match is found, and an
icon+text is shown after the buttons telling us the truth:
"Phrase not found"
Dialogs are evil !

I've done some slight testing, a little dirdiff, small test

Yeah, we'll get tons of bugs logged, when it will run
Besides the 3 simple fixes I already sent, I got hangs in
popen that were fixed by using subprocess.Popen(), I'll
need to dig that in my big WIP patch pile & rediff against

I'd add for the release:
- toggling VC filtering buttons change multiVC combobox
back to the first VC plugin, which is counter intuitive, but
that may be hard to fix cleanly.
- I've reproduced bug 578303 and tested proposed patches
looks OK, highlighting diffs at EOF (particularly \n) is fixed
by the first patch. Code looks right (I don't know the
internals of diffutils.py at all)
- I'd change the default value for the "automatically provide
\n at EOF" preference, with the same rationale as for "ignore
change that insert or delete withespace": Default to show
everything that changed unless asked not to. Like the
